Albert Mohler: Remembering Midway

Billy Graham

We have just recently marked the 75th anniversary of one of the most significant events in all of naval history: the Battle of Midway.

What’s most important about this battle is that it came just six months after the Japanese sneak attack upon Pearl Harbor. The United States Navy largely defeated the Japanese Navy by turning the tables, and the fact that it did so within just six months is one of the most amazing stories of military history.

U.S. Naval intelligence, having intercepted and broken the Japanese code, knew where the Japanese Navy was headed and knew that they were trying to lure the Americans into a trap. The U.S. Navy took decisive action, and rather than the Japanese surprising the American Navy, it was the U.S. Navy that surprised the Imperial Japanese forces.

Fewer and fewer of those battle veterans are alive today, but our indebtedness still goes to the United States Navy and what took place in the Battle of Midway 75 years ago.
