An excellent biography about a man who did his job well, Admiral Frank Jack Fletcher. Fletcher commanded the U.S. carrier forces in the Pacific during most of the first year of WW2 when carriers were few and needs were many. Early battles, Guadalcanal and the Battle of Savo Island, clearly demonstrated how unprepared the US was to transition from peacetime to warfighting. Learning, on the job, was paid for mostly by the blood and deaths of many young men until inept and non-capable commanders were weeded out. Fortunately, there were enough leader the system, like Fletcher, that held the fort until the US got its act together.
