"Incredible Victory": Remembering Midway

This week we commemorate the 73rd anniversary of the Battle of Midway which occurred June 3-7, 1942 and was one of the most significant battles in U.S. history. The victory of the U.S. over Japan in this battle turned the tide of the Pacific war and arguably changed the course of world history.

The Naval Academy's Battle of Midway memorial sits just outside the second wing of Bancroft Hall. It is dedicated to "the day when the American spirit reached unparalleled heights and, in doing so, saved democracy for the western world."
