How They Won the War in the Pacificprovides a fascinating 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 from 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.
