In four minutes, the trajectory of World War II and the fate of the Pacific changed during the Battle of Midway.

Our resident historian, Dr. John Foster, tells the story of the battle and of the incredible heroism of the sailors and naval aviators who achieved victory that day.

In addition to being a reference librarian, Foster has a doctorate degree in history. He has taught history at both high school and college levels. Previously, he has led series on the Battles of World War II, US Presidents of the 20th Century, and the Revolutionary War at our library.
