    Huh, lloks like I have my own, full-time personal fact-checker.
    Hey, I have a book that needs editing... and how about a colonoscopy while your at it?

    Allow me to respond in kind-
    Wake island; http://geography.about.com/library/cia/blcwake.htm
    Coastline:19.3 km facing the ocean, the lagoon coastline is nearly that long.
    This is really a group of three islands, elongated ones wrapped around a large lagoon three miles long and about one mile wide.

    Midway Island; http://www.ibiblio.org/hyperwar/USMC...M-Midway-1.gif
    Coastline- 20km. total, both facing the sea, and each other and the coral atol.

    As you can see, with so much exposed coastline and little depth, the defense of Wake presents many challenges to a coastal defense Battalion that Midway does not.
