The battle of Midway 1942: Told from the Japanese Commander's perspective. You are Admiral Nagumo and have to make quick decisions without knowing the full picture. What would you do? The fog of war is on so you only see what he sees and know what he knows. (He isn't sure where his enemy is.) The video's use of information visualization shows the timeline and parameters around his options. Use of portrait photographs are shown with some unit icons on the map help bring the human stories to life.
'The Battle of Midway was a decisive naval battle in the Pacific Theater of World War II that took place between 4 and 7 June 1942, only six months after Japan's attack on Pearl Harbor.' From a leadership perspective today this can be considered from the perspective of an exercise in ordering priority of things like speed, timing, resources, situational awareness, strategic victory and short-term gains.
