Battle of Midway

Midway is a 6.2 square kilometer atoll located in the North Pacific, about a third of the way from Hawaii to Japan. The Japanese fleet attacked the island in June of 1942, in order to eliminate a forward US base, and in the hopes of luring part of the U.S. fleet into a position where it could be engaged on favorable terms and destroyed.

Instead, the Japanese fleet was heavily damaged, losing four carriers, while sinking only one U.S. carrier. The battle of Midway has been called the turning point in the Pacific war, and afterwards, the Japanese fleet remained on the strategic defensive for the remainder of the conflict. Dime a Dozen's Midway is an objective-based map, where the Japanese fleet attempts to destroy U.S. naval forces and ground-based air installations, before losing their own ships.
