 The latest monograph in the Korean War series illuminates the role of the Navy's top flag officers in Washington, the Pacific area, and the Korean theater of operations before and during the first chaotic months of war. Thanks to the leadership of six influential naval offcers and the mobility of naval forces, especially carrier aviation, U.S. forces were in South Korea within three weeks of the North's invasion. The six protagonists--Admiral Forrest P. Sherman, Admiral Arthur W. Radford, Vice Admiral C. Turner Joy, Vice Admiral Arthur D. Struble, Rear Admiral James H. Doyle, and Rear Admiral Arleigh A. Burke--were involved in the strategy, planning, and execution of the most critical operations of the war.

Historians, especially miliary historians, high school students, and university, including political science, history, and military science students may be interested in this volume for research about the Kroean War.
