The Battle of Midway was one of the big maritime battles against the Imperial Japanese naval forces during the Pacific War. National Review has presented today a collection of images from the collections of the Naval History and Heritage Command and the National Archives. We need to be steadily reminded of our own history, and what we have been through as a nation and a people. One of the greatest gifts you can give your children is an interest in and fondness for learning about our history. Makes us better judges of what we are doing or not doing today.

The plane, pictured above, is a Dauntless SBD dive bomber, one of the work horses of the Pacific War.
