Details: This is a truly global work of naval history. With essays from no fewer than twenty-six eminent naval historians – Japanese, German, British, and American – Men of War presents in one volume the military biographies of thirty-one men who between them masterminded and conducted the Second World War at sea. The High Command – Pound, Raeder, King, Yamamoto, Nimitz, Spruance, Donitz, and Cunningham; the Air Admirals – Halsey, Mitscher, Nagumo, and Ozawa; the Amphibious Admirals – Conolly, Hewitt, Kinkaid, and Turner; the Submariners – Kretschmer, Prien, and Lockwood; the Anti-Submariners, Tactical and General – Walker, Horton, Stark, Ramsey, Somerville, Fraser, Vian, and Burke; and the Unsung Heroes as well, men whose efforts do not usually come into naval histories – Godfrey and Rochefort of the Intelligence branch, Moreel of the Seabees, and the U.S. Marine General Howlin’ Mad Smith. Men of War is likely to become one of the standard reference books for anyone interested in the naval aspects of World War Two.
