Overview

Yet another in-depth military account from the prolific Hoyt. Focusing on the US Seventh Fleet, the author offers a vivid, authoritative log of key operations launched by Gen. Douglas MacArthur, commander of Allied forces in WW II's Southwest Pacific theater. Starting in late 1943, to illustrate, MacArthur directed American and Australian troops on a series of leapfrogging assaults, which by the summer of 1944 recaptured New Guinea from the Japanese. With each engagement, the Seventh Fleet (which Hoyt dubs MacArthur's Navy) gained valuable warships and invaluable experience. A solid chronicle on a vital weapon in MacArthur's arsenal.
