This Week on History Happy Hour: Admiral Chester Nimitz won WWII in the Pacific – commanding the Pacific Fleet from a few days after Pearl Harbor until the end of the war.

In this encore episode Chris and Rick talk to History Happy Hour alum Craig Symonds about his book, Nimitz at War: Command Leadership from Pearl Harbor to Tokyo Bay. And we reveal he powerful cocktail that helped fuel the Admiral on his way to victory!
