Posted on 02/24/2014 9:17:57 AM PST by tomkat
The Command Summary of FADM Nimitz was compiled by the War Plans Section of the Pacific Command Headquarters in Hawaii during World War II. It contains daily estimates of the situation, command decisions, and running summaries of communications from December 7, 1941 to August 31, 1945. Naval War College Historian Douglas Smith avers that it is "the most authoritative source on the Pacific War available anywhere".
Imho, the original poster's submission being yanked for lack of a link was completely unnecessary.
$10 says that a link would have been provided by someone before the thread had accumulated 20 replies.
Try the decaf.
I didn’t see the original thread
but Wow tomcat
this looks like an incredible site
and very interesting reading
WE, everyday people, would do well to understand what our grandfathers etc went through so we have what we have today
and that some special people like Nimitz found ways
I meant tomcat
guess I was thinking of TopGun :)
Gah. I just posted a few items to that last thread I thought might be of interest to freepers who follow these things...now they are tombstoned.
Geez. I agree. Anyway, thanks for posting it again.
The words posted in that body of the thread did not match that link.
We looked online for the words posted and discovered the source changed the wording so we restored the thread.
BTW the wording at one source was changed to “has released” instead of “will” release.
Hard to keep up with news sources that change stories in midstream.
Look before you leap.
Anyway, to whoever it was, thanks for the heads-up and here it is.
It does look like a great bunch of reading, and I'm looking forward to d/l the pdfs.
RK: my pleasure .. it's with a k, has nothing whatsoever to do with cats, but partially/tangentially to do with admiration for the 'old' F-14
RL: don't you just HATE gettin' something typed up and then BANG no more thread .. grrrrrrrr
Bearded clerics in dirty robes, wearing pointy hats, perusing ancient dusty tomes of mystery by dim candlelight. Mumbling incantations, making complicated gestures of arcane runes in the air causing naughty posts to self immolate in shame.

Decaf? If it’s 80 proof...

Y'all may as well nuke this thread since it's now a dupe .. the other posters above here are already over on the other thread anyway.
Great link, thank you for pushing through.
once again, with an actual URL this time: SMASH HERE
