Review quote

" This fourth volume has all the sinewy virtues of its predecessors -- terseness, accuracy, clear and (when called for) vivid writing." -- New York Herald Tribune " An excellent book, absorbing, dispassionate and crystal clear." -- The Nation " Terse, sinewy, meticulous, and sweeping. Morison's 15-volume history of the U.S. Navy in World War II was a milestone in the record of 20th-century arms... Admiral Morison's series has merited a central niche in the annals of WWII." - WWII Historyshow more
