Guest: Craig Symonds
Sunday, November 27, 2022
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. A quiet man capable of being both a measured diplomat and a riverboat gambler, he planned the great victories of the Pacific and transformed the devastated and dispirited U.S. Fleet into the most powerful naval force in history
Chris and Rick welcome back History Happy Hour alum Craig Symonds, author of the new book, Nimitz at War: Command Leadership from Pearl Harbor to Tokyo Bay. HHH alum Andrew Roberts says “This is destined to be the defining life of Chester Nimitz for a long time to come."
The wartime leadership of Admiral Nimitz, Sunday at 4PM ET on History Happy Hour, where history is always on tap.
