THE AIRCRAFT CARRIER USS YORKTOWN uder attack. Midway. Авианосец Йорктаун. Битва за МидуэйАвианосец Йорктаун во время атаки на него.


At the Battle of Midway the Yorktown was badly damaged and
while being towed was torpedoed and sunk by an enemy submarine. After losing
all four of its aircraft carriers and 250 planes, the Japanese fleet abandoned the
assault and retired from the scene. During the battle the main body of the fleet
had come no closer than 500 miles to Midway. As in the Battle of the Coral Sea,
surface vessels made no contact during the engagement. The Battle of Midway,
one of the decisive battles in the Pacific, stopped Japanese expansion to the east,
and Midway remained in U.S. hands. The U.S. losses were one aircraft carrier,
one destroyer, and 150 planes. From this time on the balance of power in the
Pacif ic shifted steadily in favor of the Allies.

BURNING JAPANESE AIRCRAFT CARRIER during a bombing attack at the
Battle of Midway, 3–6 June 1942. The Japanese Grand Fleet, comprised of 4
aircraft carriers, 11 battleships, 14 cruisers, 58 destroyers, and all the requisite
auxiliaries, left Japan to engage the U.S. Fleet in a major battle, if possible, and
at the same time to occupy Midway Island. The U.S. Fleet, warned of the
impending attack, divided its ships into two carrier task forces consisting in all
of 3 aircraft carriers, 8 cruisers, and 14 destroyers. Twenty-five submarines
covered all the approaches and heavy and medium bombers were flown to
Midway to supplement the air power on the island.
