Honoring a Decisive Victory in World War II

December 7, 1941, “a date that will live in infamy,” as President Franklin Roosevelt called it, marked the beginning of American participation in the Second World War. The surprise attack shook a country only beginning to overcome the devastation of the Great Depression. While the war would rage on for another four years, one of most decisive battles in the Pacific theater took place just six months later from June 4-7, 1942.

The US Navy under the famed Admiral Chester Nimitz, along with fellow admirals Frank Jack Fletcher and Raymond Spruance took on a fleet of attacking ships of the Imperial Japanese Navy near Midway Atoll, from which the battle gets its name. John Keegan, a military historian, later called the American victory “the most stunning and decisive blow in the history of naval warfare.” This 2018 Niue one ounce Silver Battles that Changed History Midway Antique coin commemorates that battle and Nimitz’s victory, which would prove pivotal.
