The Midway Islands U.S. Pacific Territory have been the most important United States possession in the Pacific, other than the Hawaiian Islands. Their strategic importance to this country goes well beyond the role that they played in the Battle of Midway in 1942, and that role itself has been largely overlooked. Despite their importance there is virtually no comprehensive written history of the islands and none that could be considered up-to-date. This Project attempts to 1 produce the definitive history of the Midway Islands, 2 document and demonstrate their past strategic importance to the U.S., and 3 postulate on their future strategic significance.
