The Battle of Midway, illustrated by Wilf Hardy

4 June is the anniversary of the Battle of Midway, perhaps the most important battle in the Pacific of World War Two. Six months after the attack on Pearl Harbor, the US Navy defended the Midway Atoll and inflicted irreparable damage on the Japanese. A planned Japanese trap, American codebreakers discovered the plan and date and set up their own ambush.
