In December 1937 in Tokyo, American naval attaché intelligence officer Lieutenant Commander Edwin T. Layton (Patrick Wilson) and his counterpart are discussing the US and Japanese positions in the Pacific Ocean during a state function. Layton is warned by Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto (Etsushi Toyokawa) that if the Japanese oil supply is threatened by the US, the Japanese will take immediate action. On December 7, 1941, the Japanese use their carrier fleet to strike at Pearl Harbor. The attack leads the US to enter World War II. Naval aviator Lieutenant Dick Best (Ed Skrein) and the Air Group (CAG) of the carrier fail to find the Japanese carrier fleet, exacerbating his rivalry with his commanding officer Lieutenant Commander Eugene E. Lindsey.
The Attack on Pearl Harbor (December 1941) seriously damages the US Pacific Fleet, but left the base still operational for forward fleet actions, the Marshalls-Gilberts raids (February 1942), Doolittle Raid (April 1942), and the Battle of the Coral Sea (May 1942). It finally describes the planning for the Battle of Midway (June 1942), depicting the creation of a complicated battle plan. Admiral Yamamoto and Nagumo outline a complicated battle plan to strike Midway using the four available carriers of the Kido Butai. Joseph Rochefort (Brennan Brown) and his cryptology team begin intercepting messages concerning a location the Japanese identify as "AF". Layton speaks with Admiral Chester Nimitz, who informs him that Washington believes "AF" to be a target in the South Pacific. Layton disagrees, believing the intended target to be Midway Atoll.
