Holding class on Midway & War Plan Orange
An overview of the Battle of Midway by Professor Craig Symonds to included Station HYPO’s role and some tidbits often missed or glossed over.
Craig Symonds is the Distinguished Visiting Ernest J. King Professor of Maritime History for the academic years 2017-2019 at the U.S. Naval War College in Newport, Rhode Island. He is also Professor Emeritus at the U. S. Naval Academy where he served as chairman of the history department.
As a followup, Pete Pellegrino, U.S. Naval War College’s (NWC) senior military analyst for wargaming, lectures superbly on War Plan Orange. It is well worth your time.
