The War Changes
1942: what should have been a decisive victory for the Allies in the Battle of Midway has become a horrendous disaster instead. America's handful of carriers in the Pacific have blundered into a Japanese submarine picket line and most have been sunk. The United States has only one carrier remaining, while the ragtag remnants of U.S. battleships - an armada still reeling from the defeat at Pearl Harbor - are in even worse shape.
The Pacific belongs to the Japanese. Yet, despite disaster, the U.S. is determined to strike back.
And now a grand plan is put forth to lure the Japanese into an ambush that could restore the balance in the Pacific and give the forces of freedom a fighting chance once more.
