He also had a keen appreciation for the larger history of the nation and world, provincial is the last word one would use to describe Morison's writing.

This spectacular fifteen-volume series that charts the . Naval operations during World War II with an insider's perspective. Morison, a Harvard professor, was given a special rank and writing post by FDR.

  • Excellent text in well respected series.

  • Morison was the official historian of the USN during WWII. He experienced the action as it was happening and therefore brings a unique perspective to the acccount. It is presented in a highly readable manner and is exhaustive in detail. Well worth the time and expense.

  • The book is excellent and a good read for anyone who is interested in the retaking of the Philippines in WW2. After reading this volume you begin to see how vast the Philippine Archipelago is and how it greatly played into Japans desire for conquest in WW2.
