One thousand miles from anywhere lies a lonely outpost
of coral and sea called Midway. It was here in 1942 where
the U.S. and Japan fought one of the greatest naval battles
of World War II that changed the course of history. And it is
here again where Titanic discoverer Dr. Robert Ballard now
leads a team of experts and four World War II veterans on
the voyage of their lives.
They're on a race against time to do the impossible: find at
least one of the five downed aircraft carriers, including U.S.S.
Yorktown, more than three miles underwater. Hear the heart-
wrenching stories of four remarkable men and how each
survived the war despite incredible odds. And join them as
they pay their final respects to their fallen comrades in THE
BATTLE FOR MIDWAY.
