9781591144199: Black Shoe Carrier Admiral: Frank Jack Fletcher at Coral Sea, Midway, and Guadalcanal

This is the first paperback edition of the revisionist work about Admiral Frank Jack Fletcher, who won his battles at sea but lost the war of public opinion. A surface warrior, Fletcher led the carrier forces in the Pacific that won against all odds at Coral Sea, Midway, and the Eastern Solomon's. Despite these successes, during the post-war Fletcher had become one of the most controversial figures in U.S. naval history and was portrayed as a timid bungler who failed to relieve Wake Island and who deliberately abandoned the Marines at Guadalcanal.

About the Author:

John B. Lundstrom is the author of several books on the Pacific War, including The First Team and The First Team and the Guadalcanal Campaign. He is the recipient of the Samuel Eliot Morison Award for Naval Literature, the Hook Contributor's Award and the Admiral Arthur W. Radford Award by the National Aviation Museum. He is a resident of Milwaukee, WI.

Review:

"It is very difficult to turn around a half century of conventional wisdom, but John Lundstrom has done it. In a careful but readable way, he has proved that Adm. Jack Fletcher deserves to be remembered as a hero and not a goat." --Evan Thomas, author of Sea of Thunder
