Summary
"To list the major campaigns Admiral Halsey helped lead is to glimpse the entirety of the struggle against Japan during the Pacific War. He led or participated significantly in the Navy's first offensive strikes of the war against the Marshall Islands and Wake Island, the Guadalcanal campaign, and the occupation of Japan. As a commander, he never shied away from enemy engagement, but always boldly entered into battle, ready for a fight. Here, historian John Wukovits illuminates the life of a man whose daring tactics and quotable wit made him the Navyþs most attractive public relations phenomenon during WWII. The Associated Press wrote at the time that Halsey "was all the United States Navy needed." Europe had Patton; the Pacific had William "the Bull" Halsey"--Provided by publisher
