  • Golden freddi
This is a very informative book. It provided me with insights into the minor clashes that occured in the solomons chain. Admiral Burke was a very forward thinking commander. he constantly adjusted his tactics to the ever changing military situations. It is intersting to see his dismay at having to leave his beloved destroyers for a carrier assignment. But he was a true professinal, and adjusted qite wqell to his new responsibilities. All in all a very entertaining history, not just about Admiral Burke, but the ever changing situation in the pacific war. JRV

Everyone interested in the Naval war in the Pacific in WWII and understanding the Academy's old boy network will definitely want to read this biography. You'll not only get a close up view of Admiral Burke, but you'll also be introduced to Bull Halsey, Admirals Spruance and Mitchner. The author provides details of some of the most famous naval battles in the Pacific war. A few more maps would have been helpful.

After meeting a marine who met Admiral Burke when he was chief of naval operations, I had to learn more about the Admiral. He was part of the transition in the navy that included airplanes in roles previously handled by surface warfare vessels.
