The battle of Midway using Japanese sources. How the battle was affected by Japanese politics, doctrine, tactics and command decisions.

Just getting started, first section was about the politics, interservice rivalries and personalities moved Japan toward a battle at Midway.

Other sections cover Japanese battle doctrine, and tactics.

Do you have a link to buy the book? It would be helpful. (On the Amazon Kindle page, I found a way to embed a preview, but that does require going to the code view and pasting the code)

While one might think that Chicago's Midway Airport was so named because Chicago is more or less in the middle of the continental US, it actually was so named to commemorate the Battle of Midway.
