Overview

This meticulous study is a concentrated look at Naval Admiral Chester W. Nimitz and his subordinate leaders - fighting men under stress - and the relationship of fighting admirals to their top leaders and each other. 'The Patton of the Pacific,' Bull Halsey could win a battle; ascetic and cultivated Raymond Spruance could win a campaign; but Chester W. Nimitz, the quiet but dauntless battler form the banks of the Pedernales River, could win a war. And the way he did win that war in the Pacific is the center of this excellent and absorbing biography of naval operations and of men in command relationships. How They Won The War In The Pacific covers, at length or briefly, many leaders, including the top fighting ones afloat and ashore, and shows Admiral Chester W. Nimitz as history will record him - as the wise, calm tower of strength in adversity and success, the principal architect of victory in the Pacific during World War II.
