Battle of Midway
#1

First I have a period video that was done less than ten years after the battle.

Part One of a Naval Training film from 1950 based upon the 1948 document "NAVPERS 91067, The Battle of Midway Including the Aleutian Phase, June 3 to June 14, 1942: Strategical and Tactical Analysis by Richard W Bates" (later Rear Admiral Bates) at the Naval War college. I have never been able to find part two of this training film. Sad

Warning!!
Period prejudices towards the Japanese are still very much evident in this 1950 program.

At this time the Forum permissions only allow one video to be embedded per post so I made Montemayor's video's into links to conform to those rules.
Hope you enjoy the videos, I do think they are really well done.

Now a more recent retelling of the story by Montemayor. I am not exaggerating when I say that in my opinion his videos rival several commercial documentaries that have been professionally done. After an almost 15 month delay Part Two, which is now Parts Two and Three, of the Midway Battle are out.
