Description: Many consider the Battle of Midway to have turned the tide of the Pacific War. It is
without question one of the most famous battles in history. Now, for the first time
since Gordon W. Prange's bestselling Miracle at Midway, Jonathan Parshall and Anthony
Tully offer a new interpretation of this great naval engagement. Unlike previous
accounts, Shattered Sword makes extensive use of Japanese primary sources. It also
corrects the many errors of Mitsuo Fuchida's Midway: The Battle That Doomed Japan, an
uncritical reliance upon which has tainted every previous Western account. It thus
forces a major, potentially controversial reevaluation of the great battle. Parshall
and Tully examine the battle in detail and effortlessly place it within the context of
the Imperial Navy's doctrine and technology. With a foreword by leading World War II
naval historian John Lundstrom, Shattered Sword is an indispensable part of any
military buff's library. Shattered Sword is the winner of the 2005 John Lyman Book
Award for the "Best Book in U.S. Naval History" and was cited by Proceedings as one of
its "Notable Naval Books" for 2005.
