The Battle of Midway (1942)  was fought near the Pacific island of Midway, and is considered a turning point in the Second World War. After Pearl Harbour, the Japanese planned to capture Midway to use as an advance base and to entrap and destroy the US Pacific Fleet. Because of intelligence, the US Pacific Fleet surprised the Japanese forces, sinking the four Japanese carriers, while losing the USS Yorktown alone. After Midway, the Americans and their allies took the offensive in the Pacific.
