After Pearl Harbor, the American sailors of the fabled Asiatic Fleet were abandoned by Washington and left to conduct a war solely on their own, isolated from the rest of the fleet, while Congress discussed the hiring of 600 "sports coordinators" President Roosevelt thought were necessary for the prosecution of the war, despite his early efforts to wake up a pacifist nation and Congress. For sailors in the Philippines and the Netherlands East Indies there was no hope of seeing waves of battleships, aircraft carriers, heavy cruisers, submarines, and B-17s come over the horizon to save the day. Their fate was death aboard a burning, exploding ship, being executed upon being captured, or spending three and a half years as a prisoner, trying to avoid being murdered or dying of starvation or disease. Soldiers, sailors, and Marines were abandoned because of the failure of Washington to maintain a strong, well-prepared Navy in the face of Imperial Japanese and Nazi Germany aggression. Many books have been written about the ships of the Asiatic Fleet but this is the first book that looks behind the scenes through the writings of war correspondents and concentrates on the sailors who were on the ships.

"The General Board of the Navy, existing from 1900 to 1950, was a uniquely American and unparalleled strategic planning organization at the time of its establishment. As John T. Kuehn shows, this was the United States' first modern general staff in peacetime, as well as the nexus for naval thought and strategic thinking. The Board's creation was very much a reflection of the reformist spirit of the times that also gave birth to the Army War College, the Army General Staff, and the Chief of Naval Operations. By the 1920s, the General Board was a permanent feature of the Navy and was regarded as the premier strategic "think tank" for advice to the Secretary of the Navy. The service of the men who comprised it is little-known, but their collaborative ethos should serve as a model for their modern counterparts. Kuehn's work offers both the first single-volume history of the General Board of the Navy, as well as analysis of the U.S. Navy during periods of great transition in both peace and war."--Provided by publisher.
