MIDWAY - THE ATTACK ON THE SŌRYŪ
by Anthony Saunders

SBD pilots pull out of their death-defying dives having delivered their 1000lb bombs perfectly on target with three direct hits on the Japanese carrier Sōryū. Exploding ammunition and igniting fuel erupt onto the flight deck and secondary explosions rip through the ship, fires rage beyond control as her hull shudders to contain the violent inferno. The Sōryū is doomed, and these few courageous US Navy pilots have changed the course of history.

Thursday 4 June 1942, and Admiral Yamamoto’s plan to draw what remained of the US Pacific fleet into battle was going well. That morning, before dawn, he had launched over a hundred aircraft to pound Midway’s power plants and oil installations, and the attack had been successful. Now, with his aircraft returned, re- fueled and re-armed he prepared to launch a second strike to deliver the coup de grace.

By 10.20 the noise on the carrier’s packed flight decks reached a crescendo as the pilots ran up their engines whilst the Sōryū turned slowly into the wind ready to launch. Few were watching the sky above. They failed to spot the SBD Dauntless dive-bombers from the USS Yorktown gathering high overhead. No one noticed as the battle-hardened pilots of VB-3 banked their SBDs and, swooping like hawks on their prey, dived on the carrier below.
