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.

японский десант на Аляску 1942Голландская гавань, Аляска. 3 и 4 июня 1942 японцы подвергли её бомбардировке. 3 июня 1942 бомбардировка была малоэффективной, на следующий день урон был серьёзным. 4 июня 1942 японский батальон высадился на Атту, а 6 июня десантировались на Киска. Обе стороны поняли, что погодные условия в этом регионе не способствуют ведению боевых действий поэтому Алеуты не использовались для больших военных баз.

DUTCH HARBOR, ALASKA, with buildings burning after the Japanese bombing
of June 1942. On 3 and 4 June the Japanese attacked the Army installations
there. Of the two bombings, the first resulted in little damage, but the second
considerably damaged ground installations. On 4 June the Japanese landed a
battalion on Attu, and on the 6th troops landed on Kiska. Since most of the
available U.S. ships, planes, and trained troops were needed in other areas, no
immediate action was begun to recapture Attu and Kiska. Both the United States
and Japan learned that, because of the extremely bad weather conditions, this
area was one of the most unsuitable in the world for combat operations and the
Aleutians were not used as an important base for operations.
