Product Description

About the Author

Samuel Eliot Morison, an eminent Harvard professor, was appointed by close friend Franklin D. Roosevelt to write the history of U.S. naval operations during World War II after convincing the president that too many wartime histories were written after the fact or from a distance. Morison called his classic work a shooting historyA" of World War II, because it was documented by historical observation during each specific naval operation in the Atlantic and Pacific. Hailed for its accuracy, narrative pace, and detail, this monumental work presents a complete record of the U.S. Navy's war at sea, covering the strategic planning, battle tactics, and technological advances, as well as the heroic actions of American sailors.

Format: Paperback
This is a good, solid, very well written book from which I learned a lot and which was a pleasure to read. Admiral Morison's style is as usual very charming and it helps swallow the great quantity of information this book delivers.

For obvious reasons two thirds of this book describe the operation Neptune-Overlord - the landing in Normandy and the following campaign. On two hundred pages we can read first about the planning of this major operation, then training, preparation and logistical build-up, before going towards the beaches themselves. Considering that this is a history of US Navy operations most of the attention is devoted to Utah and Omaha beaches, but one short chapter describes also briefly the British landings. Other allies are not forgotten - Free French, Polish, Canadian, Norwegian and Dutch navies are mentioned when relevant and their participation and losses recognized (Polish light cruiser ORP "Dragon" and Norwegian destroyer HNoMS "Svenner" both were lost in this campaign).

US Navy participated in the landing with three battleships (USS "Nevada" salvaged after being sunk at Pearl Harbor, USS "Texas" and the venerable veteran USS "Arkansas"), three heavy cruisers (veteran USS "Augusta" from which Gen. Bradley commanded, USS "Tuscaloosa" and the fresh out of shipyard USS "Quincy"), thirty nine destroyers and 154 other, smaller warships.

The fire support offered by the battleships, heavy cruisers and the destroyers was crucial in the first weeks after the landing.

Wow! I never thought I would ever see a reprinting of the original Sunday strips. The stories are excellent and concise. The restoration of the colors are stunning. If you want nostelgia from when America was emerging, relive Sunday mornings with an exciting read.
