The decisive Battle of Midway (WWII documentary)

I rolled this last night and became completely captivated for a solid hour. What a story. It’s all in the details. The cat and mouse, the managing of resources, the unloading and unloading of torpedoes, the battle of intelligence, the timing. It all came down to a matter of minutes and final gallons of fuel.

It’s insane to imagine what would’ve happened if they’d had their way. If they grabbed Midway, the west coast of the U.S. was certainly next, with the Los Angeles harbor being the logical first target. That was the plan. Hard to believe people could have such real intentions. Delusional. Imperialistic mentality. No room for it in any galaxy.
