Battle of Midway, June 1942
Damage on Sand Island, Midway, following the Japanese air attack delivered on the morning of 4 June 1942.
This view, probably photographed from the powerplant roof, looks roughly southwest, along what was then Sand Island's southern shore. Building in the foreground is the laundry, which was badly damaged by a bomb. Oil tanks are burning in the distance.
Note pilings and surf in the left distance.
