All signs pointed to Midway as the target, and even with the risk of failure, Nimitz ordered the two carriers into battle. In addition, Nimitz knew that his Naval Aviators, especially Lt. Dick Best, were prepared for the gloves to come off.

Poor writer doesn't know his history.

He doesn't mention how they determined it was Midway, and he doesn't mention the 3rd carrier.

  Really, the ONLY way Midway could be done right would be a series.
