    The Nimitz/Halsey question was less than fair. Both Nagumo AND Yamamato were part of the task force approaching Midway. Halsey was the senior commander at sea while Nimitz remained in Pearl Harbor…. Hmmmm

    I am a World History Teacher for a high school. I love pages like these for my students. Do you happen to have any sites on any other parts of history or other wars? These are so great to give my students for extra credit or even for classroom starter warm-ups. Thank you!
