What was The Battle Of Midway?

The battle in 1942 took place six months after the Japanese surprise attack on Pearl Harbor after the Navy code breakers broke complex Japanese code to reveal a plan to ambush US forces.

The Japanese planned to occupy Midway, a strategically located US atoll 1,300 miles northwest of Pearl Harbor, and to destroy the remains of the Pacific fleet.

When Japanese planes bombed Midway, American torpedo planes and bombers collided with four Japanese carriers in four waves and sank them away.

The fighting lasted three days before the United States triumphed.

Anthony J. Principi, who was secretary of veteran affairs from 2001 to 2005, wrote in the Military Time in 2017 on the 75th anniversary of the fight that naval commanders & # 39; coordinated, split-second, life-and-death made decisions. & # 39;

& # 39; We won because luck was on our side, because the Japanese made mistakes and because our officers and men acted with great courage in the chaos of the struggle, he wrote.

& # 39; Pearl Harbor is the biggest intelligence failure in American history & # 39 ;, says Wilson [Lieutenant Commander Edwin T. Layton], while mass funerals are performed in the aftermath of the fight. & # 39; The Japanese are planning something much bigger & # 39 ;, he tells Admiral Chester Nimitz of Harrelson.

Ships from ships and planes are then seen across the ocean as Wilson adds that he believes the goal is Midway – the Hawaiian island in the North Pacific.

& # 39; Washington disagrees & # 39 ;, says the same authoritative voice. & # 39; Washington is wrong! & # 39; Wilson claims.

And indeed they are; when the attack begins on the island.

& # 39; Today we become the underdog & # 39 ;, Skrein acknowledges Lieutenant Dick Best. & # 39; Today we are going to prove that the US Navy is not a joke. & # 39;

The film is actually the second film in which The Battle Of Midway is described; names like Charlton Heston, Henry Fonda, James Coburn, Glenn Ford, Hal Holbrook, Toshiro Mifune, Robert Mitchum, Cliff Robertson and Robert Wagner were in a 1976 version with the same title.

Emmerich told Military.com: & # 39; The first time I had the idea to do Midway, it was really like 20 years ago. I had a deal with Sony, but the film did not come together because the studio was owned by the Japanese, so they were not very inclined to make a film in which they felt the big losers of a fight.

& # 39; I've always wanted to tell them I'm not going to show the Japanese as losers. Decision makers started this war. The navy did not start the war.

& # 39; That movie didn't come together, and then Michael Bay and Jerry Bruckheimer did Pearl Harbor. I always wanted to start my movie with Pearl Harbor because you can only understand Midway if you show Pearl Harbor. Midway is more or less a film about the six months between Pearl Harbor and the battle.

& # 39; Then I thought of our political climate now, where everyone has forgotten how wars have been fought and how heroic these people were. I wanted to make a monument for these boys because it is amazing what they did and how selfless they were. & # 39;

He continued: & # 39; I don't really like that we are still country patriotic in our time and day. We must all be patriotic as people and try to find a way out to save this planet. At the moment, politically speaking, America is against the rest of the world. It is the Muslims against the western world; they are the Russians against the West. It has become very nationalistic in the last 10 years, which I don't really like, because that means that there may be wars on the horizon.

& # 39; That was another reason why I wanted to make a movie about Midway. It is the right film at the right time, because the film doesn't really talk about politics that much. There is talk about strategy and you suddenly realize that mistakes have been made on both sides. They are all normal people, and none of these people in the film started the war. Politicians started the war.

& # 39; That was the interesting part about it for me. That's why I tried to be very honest about how we portray the Japanese. If they are not full-fledged characters – only the enemy – then I think it would be the wrong movie. & # 39;
