Father-and-son team Peter and Dan Snow embark on an epic journey to describe battles that transformed the 20th century. The Snows fly to the middle of the Pacific Ocean to give a blow-by-blow account of the battle of Midway. It was the birth of a new type of sea warfare where bombers did all the damage, and enemy ships wouldn't even see each other. Peter explains how the US aircraft carriers that had narrowly escaped disaster at Pearl Harbor were all that could stop the carriers of the mighty Imperial Navy of Japan. Dan tells the pilots' stories, and experiences for himself what it would have been like for the sailors.
