"This incredible book shatters all previous notions on how the Battle of Midway was fought. It also shatters all the standards for military reference works. SHATTERED SWORD will come to be regarded as a benchmark in modern history, for it brings to bear all the tools of modern communication technology in a way that has never been done before. [It] utterly refutes the conclusions of most of the previous accounts of the battle. . . . This book is a page turner, but its importance and its wealth of detail will deman an immediate re-reading." --Walter J. Boyne, former director of the Smithsonian Institution's National Air and Space Museum and author of BEYOND THE WILD BLUE: A HISTORY OF THE UNITED STATES AIR FORCE, 1947-1997
