The Quiet Warrior: A Biography of Admiral Raymond A. Spruance

Naval Institute Press, 2013. 7. 31. - 560페이지
Regarded as the standard biography of World War II naval hero Adm. Raymond A. Spruance, this work is now available in trade paperback for the first time. Spruance, victor of the battles of Midway and the Philippine Sea and commander of the Fifth Fleet in the invasions of the Gilberts, the Marshalls, the Marianas, and Okinawa, is one of the towering figures in American naval history. Yet his reserved, cerebral personality did not make good copy for correspondents, and until the publication of The Quiet Warrior he remained an elusive figure. Thomas Buell has succeeded in evoking the nature of the man as well as recording the achievements of the admiral in this brilliant biography, which won the Alfred Thayer Mahan Award for Literary Achievement the year of its publication.

This is a fitting biography of the commander of the American side of the wildly co-incidental battle of Midway. It is a book heavily slanted to the service life of Spruance, but his navy life is his claim to fame. The maps are competent, and the text is clear. 전체 리뷰 읽기
