Map endpapers. 8vo, grey cloth with blue lettering to spine. "Applauded by the public and revered by the men who served under him, Admiral William F. Halsey was one of the great American personalities of World War II. His reputation as a no-holds-barred fighter and his tough-guy expression earned him the nickname Bull, yet he was also known for showing genuine compassion towards his men. As this well-rounded biography demonstrates, he was a complex character, at once a volatile, often unpredictable tactician and a consummate leader capable of inspiring his subordinates to great feats, as wehn in late 1942 he relieved a defeatist U.S. command in the South Pacific and in thirty days reversed the course of the Pacific war." - from the dustjacket.
