Memorial Miniature Golf and Museum: Hole 9 – Midway
Hole 9 is sponsored by:
Six months after the devastating attack on Pearl Harbor, the US Navy rearmed and re-equipped its fleet to attack the Japanese fleet at Midway, turning the tide of the war in the Pacific for good. The battle began thanks to American cryptographers who learned the exact date and location of a planned Japanese Naval attack on the American fleet.
The American Navy rapidly mobilized what air units it could and even sent the carrier Yorktown, which was still being repaired, to combat the Japanese fleet. The Americans only fielded three carriers against the Japanese’s five, but the element of surprise was on the American side.
On June 3rd, 1942, the first American patrol plane spotted the Japanese fleet. The next morning, Japanese torpedo and dive-bombers attacked Midway Island itself, where only a small American garrison was positioned. While the island was heavily bombed, the garrison held out. While the Japanese attack was underway, carrier-based American aircraft began attacking the Japanese fleet.
Due to Japanese disorganization and surprise, very few Japanese aircraft ever got off the ground to combat the American threat. Within 24 hours, the Americans sank four Japanese carriers and a cruiser while only losing the already damaged Yorktown and one Destroyer. The Japanese fleet was neutralized at Midway, and from then on the Japanese were forced onto the defensive.
The victory at Midway was staggering, but would never have occurred without the hard work of countless women working around the clock to build the ships and aircraft that crippled the Japanese Navy…(continued on hole #10).
Vocabulary Word: Cryptographers – The practice of breaking enemy codes, or Cryptography was crucial to Allied victory in WWII. Both the Americans and British devoted vast resources into breaking Axis codes that allowed them to know where and when the enemy was planning his next move.Memorial Miniature Golf and Museum
