The Navy's War
The Navy's War
By Fletcher Pratt
Harper, 1944, 295 pp

Though Mr. Pratt was not an eyewitness to the far-flung activities of the U. S. Navy in this war, these chapters -- originally published in Harper's Magazine -- represent the writing of contemporary history at its best -- lucid, vivid and authoritative. The author was supplied with reports, documents and other official material by the Navy Department.
