  • Description

    This film shows various views of the Midway Islands in the Pacific Ocean approximately 1,200 miles northwest of Hawaii. This is the site of the up-coming conference between President Richard Nixon of the United States and President Nguyen Van Thieu of the Republic of Vietnam.

    Midway, the site of the famous naval battle of June, 1942, consists of only two square miles of land mass over a 28-square-miles area of the Pacific.

    The island group is about halfway between the United States and the Philippines and is used as a naval and air base under the control of the Department of the Navy.
