EDWIN P. HOYT is an independent historian. He is the author of more than 150 books, mostly in the area of military history, includingThe Last Kamikaze and Hirohito. Born and raised in Portland, Oregon, Hoyt turned his attention to journalism after service in the Pacific theater during World War II. He has written for theDenver Post, Collier's Magazine, and American Heritage, as well as for CBS news.

How They Won the War in the Pacific provides a fascinating 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. ?The Patton of the Pacific,” Bull Halsey 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.
