The Battle of Midway

These artistic representations of the battle of Midway are an important supplement for the historical record of the event. Because the two opposing fleets never came face to face, a number of significant incidents of the battle are unrecorded, and these artworks help fill the gaps. Derived from eyewitness accounts and official photographs, these images are prime examples of what the public was given to visualize this historic encounter.
