This is a 13 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on World War II - Pacific Theater - Battle of Midway. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
Following the Battle of Coral Sea, the commander of the Japanese Combined Fleet, Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto, devised a plan to draw the remaining ships of the US Pacific Fleet into a battle where they could be destroyed. To do this, he planned to invade the island of Midway, 1,300 miles northwest of Hawaii.
Yamamoto knew the Americans would send their remaining carriers to protect the island. Believing the US to only have 2 carriers operational, he sailed with 4, plus a large fleet of battleships and cruisers.
Nimitz was aware of the Japanese plan and dispatched the carriers USS Enterprise and USS Hornet, under Rear Admiral Raymond Spruance, as well as the hastily repaired USS Yorktown, under Fletcher, to the waters north of Midway to intercept the Japanese.
The presentation covers the following:
The Battle of Midway
The Naval Code Breakers
Japanese Carriers Destroyed
Yorktown is Lost
Hiryu is Sunk
