Videos for the Classroom: BBC’s The Battle of Midway

Yesterday was the anniversary of the US Navy, a fact I had forgotten but was reminded by a newcomer to the Neighborhood.  Tony runs Adventures in History, a cornucopia of websites, images and information for the history enthusiast.  Please take a look, and tell Tony that Mr. D sent you!

In honor of the Navy’s birthday, I’m attaching the BBC documentary about the 1942 Battle of Midway.  It’s in six parts, so be patient.  A great overall view of the battle, and one of our navy’s greatest battles.  Enjoy.

BTW, There’s still time for your entry for “History’s Greatest Asshole.”  Submissions are coming in, but we still need more!  Get them in by next Friday!
