Hi; I just finished watching the Battlefield do***entary series episode about the battle of Midway, and one area where the U. S. N had the Japanese and no doubt everyone else beat is in damage control . From what I saw, the Japanese carriers were hit with 3 or 4 bombs which penetrated their flight decks and left them blazing wrecks. U S S Yorktown was later attacked also hit by 3 bombs which penetrated her flight decks, knocked out her boilers, and started fires. But unlike the Japanese the fires were put out and the engines repaired and in a little over 1 1/2 hours she was underway at 20 knots and recovering aircraft! No wonder that when the second wave of planes attacked the Japanese thought they were hitting a different carrier . It then took 2 or 3 torpedoes to knock her out for good, even after that she didn't sink until a submarine got her while being towed back.
