Abstract:

"After graduating from the U.S. Naval Academy during World War I, J.J. "Jocko" Clark went on to become a pioneer in one of the great transformations of the U.S. Navy - - the change from surface-only force to one in which aviation played a major role. Under the leadership of the key aviation admirals, William A. Moffett and Ernest J. King, Clark helped develop carrier doctrine and airplanes until the outbreak of World War II. As captain of the new aircraft carrier Yorktown, he provided aggressive leadership in the capture of the Gilbert and Marshall Islands. As a carrier task group commander he was instrumental in the brilliant victory at the Battle of the Philippine Sea and in the Okinawa campaign. After the war he fought to save naval aviation from the attacks of other services and went on to serve as Commander of the Seventh Fleet in the Korean War, where his innovative "Cherokee Strikes" played a crucial role. Worshipped by his men but despised by others for his "call-'em-as-I-see-'em" method of leadership, the flamboyant Jocko Clark was respected by all. Raised in Indian Territory (later Oklahoma), he became the highest-ranking naval officer of Native American descent in U.S. history. With access to family papers and as coauthor of Admiral Clark's 1967 autobiography, Clark Reynolds is well suited to bring the last of the colorful, old-school American naval leaders to life. Accompanying this book is a sixty-minute CD filled with excerpts of interviews conducted by the author with Admirals Clark, Arleigh Burke, and George Anderson, along with several other notable naval figures." --Jacket flap.
