As Admiral Chester Nimitz found out about the messages from the Japanese, he took the aircraft carriers to Midway. On June 4th, 1942 Japan attacked causing one of the important battles in WWII. Bombers and planes sank four Japanese aircraft carriers. We lost one.

Japan almost threw an entire Imperial Fleet towards the Battle of Midway, which meant that they almost had was about to be used. That included six aircraft carriers, submerines, thirteen cruisers and more. America, on the other hand, only had three aircraft carriers, eight cruisers and a bit more.
