With his usual clarity and skill, Morison also discusses the strategy that led to the concluding campaigns of the war and to the dropping of the atomic bombs. He addresses the logistics problem of supplying fleets and armies thousands of miles from bases, the devastating prowls by submarines, and the controversial loss of the USS Indianapolis His detailed account of the delicate negotiations that led to the surrender of Japan holds particular interest.
