Opis produktu:

• Highly detailed account of Naval Operations in World War II including the Battle of the Komandorskis and the evacuation of Kiska

The seventh volume in Admiral Morison’s History of the United States Naval Operations in World War II picks up operations in the Aleutians where they were broken off after the Battle of Midway and carries them through the capture of Attu and Kiska, including the Battle of the Komandorskis. 

Two great amphibious operations are covered in this volume: the Gilbert Islands and the conquest of the Marshalls. Captain Morison, who took part in Operation: Galvanic, describes in detail the planning, preparation, and execution of the assaults on Makin and Tarawa, with a frank discussion of the mistakes.

The grim narrative of one of the most inspired and successful amphibious operation of the war contrasts with several amusing interludes including how the Japanese fooled US troops in the evacuation of Kiska.

Samuel Eliot Morison taught history at Harvard from 1915 to 1955, except for active duty service in the Navy on board eleven different ships in all theatres of the war. In addition to this series, Rear Admiral Morison wrote many other popular and award-winning books on maritime history, including Two Ocean War. Morison, who died in 1976, was the recipient of two Pulitzer Prizes, two Bancroft Prizes, and the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
