A Mogami class Japanese cruiser is the flaming target of carrier-based U.S. naval aircraft in the historic battle of Midway which raged for three days in June 1942. In this battle, the Japanese navy was dealt a paralyzing blow from which it never recovered, and turned the tide of the Pacific war. The Japanese cruiser's superstructure is shown twisted and flaming white-hot, her big guns pointing helter-skelter and her port holes awash. (Associated Press)
