This is one of the finest book of military history that I have read. Walter Lord has written a holistic view of the Battle of Midway that is at once detailed and breezy. The book begins with the brilliant code breaking done by military intelligence, then moves to the rapid repairs done to the aircraft carrier Yorktown, and ends with an outgunned American naval force trouncing an arrogant Japanese force.

Franz Matt, just finished this tonight...what an excellent book. Have you thought of reading any other of Lord's books?
