Beans, bullets, and black oil : the story of fleet logistics afloat in the Pacific during World War II by Worrall Reed Carter( Book )

8 editions published between 1953 and 2015 in English and held by 339 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Victory is won or lost in battle, but all military history shows that adequate logistic support is essential to the winning of battles. In World War II, logistic support of the fleet in the Pacific became a problem of such magnitude and diversity, as well as vital necessity, that all operations against Japan hinged upon it. The advance against the enemy moved the fleet progressively farther and farther away from the west coast of the United States, from Pearl Harbor, and from other sources of supply, to support the fleet that was constructed as temporary bases for various uses, and formed floating mobile service squadrons and other logistic support groups. These floating organizations remained near the fighting fleet, supplying food, ammunition, and other necessities while rendering repair services close to the combat areas. This support enabled the fleet to keep unrelenting pressure upon the enemy by obviating the return of the fleet to home bases. Because of the knowledge gained during his South Pacific service and particularly from his experience as Commander of Service Squadron Ten, the largest of the mobile squadrons, Rear Admiral W.R. Carter was chosen to write this history of logistics afloat in the Pacific. The opinions expressed and the conclusions reached are those of the author

C. Francis Jenkins : Spruance of Midway( Recording )

1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Side 1: Hoosiers and motion pictures go all the way back to the days preceeding Hollywood ... all of the way back to Richmond's C. Fransic Jenkins. Jenkins invented the motion picture system which Thomas Edison received credit for developing. Edison bought Jenkins' equipment and the rights to build more. Jenkins also is credited for inventing the paper milk carton. Side 2: Indianapolis' Raymond Spruance, who sailed toy boats on the city's Fall Creek as a child, grew into one of the most influential officers in the United States Navy in World War II. Substituting for ailing Admiral William Halsey at the battle of Midway Island, Spruance's command decisions turned the tide against attacking Japanese warships, and established the conditions necessary for an American victory in the Pacific theater

Admiral Raymond A. Spruance, USN : a study in command by Emmet Peter Forrestel( Book )

1 edition published in 1966 in Undetermined and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Although some historians and many newsmen have written many words about Admiral Raymond A. Spruance, U.S. Navy and his brilliant career in the Pacific in World War II, the complete story of this reserved and self-effacing man is now being told for the first time by one of his close friends and wartime associates. The author, Vice Admiral E.P. Forrestel, an important member of Spruance's Staff, was in an ideal position to observe and report on the thought processes of this great and successful naval officer. Spruance's rise to fame came in the Battle of Midway where his sound judgement and wise decisions won a stunning victory over greatly superior enemy forces. That victory reversed the long series of enemy successes and was truly the turning point in the war. From that time on he played an ever increasing part in our naval advance across the Pacific-a task he shared in full measure with another great American naval officer-Admiral W.F. Halsey, U.S. Navy. Tarawa, the Marshall Islands, the Marianas, Iwo Jima and the Ryukyus were important stepping stones along the way that lead to the deck of the U.S.S. MISSOURI in Tokyo Bay where the surrender terms were signed on September 2, 1945. To cap his extraordinarily successful naval career which ended in his Presidency of the Naval War College he accepted an appointment as our Ambassador in the Philippines. Here his wisdom and tact contributed importantly to the satisfactory settlement of a number of troublesome and vexatious problems that disturbed the good relations that should exist between the governments of the Philippines and the United States. It is given to few Americans to serve their country so effectively and at such high levels as did this man. His career will serve as an example and a challenge to service personnel and diplomats alike. His story will be read avidly by those who suffered his blows in war and by those who are hostile to our country
