From the Back Cover:

This meticulous study is a concentrated look at Naval Admiral Chester W. Nimitz and his subordinate leaders—fighting men under stress—and the relationship of fighting admirals to their top leaders and each other. Bull Halsey, “The Patton of the Pacific,” could win a battle; ascetic and cultivated Raymond Spruance could win a campaign; but Chester W. Nimitz, the quiet but dauntless battler from the banks of the Pedernales River, could win a war. And the way he did win that war in the Pacific is the center of this excellent and absorbing biography of naval operations and of men in command relationships.  How They Won the War in the Pacific covers many leaders, including the top fighting ones afloat and ashore, and it shows Admiral Chester W. Nimitz as history will record him—as the wise, calm tower of strength in adversity and success, the principal architect of victory in the Pacific during World War II.
