Remembering Midway

I was surprised and pleased when I saw that Wired’s interesting historical fact of the day for today was the Battle of Midway. Good on yer, Wired!

(It’s an interesting observation they make. The “tech angle” here that this was the 2nd naval battle in which the fleets never made visual contact with each other. That is, it was a naval battle decided not by battle ships but aircraft carriers. We lost only one, the Yorktown. I’ve been aboard the aircraft carrier Yorktown, but it wasn’t the one sunk at Midway.)
