"Launch the Attack" is the succinct but powerful order ADM Spruance issued to his staff when the first of four Japanese aircraft carriers were located on the morning of the Battle of Midway on June 4th, 1942. ADM Spruance was a tactical genius whose advanced planning, forethought, and general guidance to his staff, combined with complete trust in the abilities of his subordinates, required only this simple order to be given to allow the events of the day to commence.
