Summary

Contains more than 30 illustrations of the Author, his ships and the engagements.
The term Legend is bandied about far too much these days to describe anyone who has achieved even limited prominence in their chosen field; however Legend is quite the accurate one for Fleet Admiral William “Bull” Halsey. Although a modest man who once said that “There are no great men, just great challenges which ordinary men, out of necessity, are forced by circumstances to meet.”; it is clear that the challenges that he met were extraordinary in the Pacific theatre during the Second World War.
Bold, brash and determined Halsey led the first offensive against the Japanese Navy in command of the carrier group that launched the Doolittle raid; his aggressive thrusting style led to him spearheading nearly every major US Navy attack on the Japanese. In this age of soundbites Halsey is still continually quoted for the pithy wit that he often coined such as his slogan for the Navy -“Hit hard, hit fast, hit often”.
Halsey left his imprint across the entire Pacific War and his autobiography is sure to interest any Naval or History buff.
