Coming Soon!

For as long as I can remember I have been fascinated by the Pacific Campaign of the Second World War. I had other interests while growing up, and still do in adulthood, but I would have to label my studying of the conflict between Japan and the United States as my favorite. I am not totally sure, but I think my interest stemmed from watching "The Battle of Midway," with my father when I was young. If I was not already, I was hooked when I finished reading Gordon Prange's Miracle at Midway.

Other hobbies and interests have come and gone, but this has stuck with me through the years. While I know that others have far more knowledge and insight on the Battle of Midway, my objective has been from day one to publish the most accurate and complete web site possible. With the help of several people, I am slowly beginning to accomplish this admittedly lofty goal.
