The Battle of Midway was in June 1942 during World War II. In this battle, the war turned against the Japanese and America started winning.

The Japanese brought together the largest naval force in the world near Midway Island in the Pacific. One soldier with superb vision noticed some dots on the horizon during a routine surveillance flight in the Pacific, and discovered the massive Japanese fleet. Alerting his aircraft carrier of the find, Admiral Chester Nimitz, the commander of the U.S. Pacific Fleet, launched an attack and won the Battle of Midway, which was the turning point in the war against the Japanese.[1]
