Overview

"Stay there until the war is won," Pres. Franklin Roosevelt said to Chester Nimitz after Pearl Harbor was bombed on December 7, 1941. Nimitz rose to the challenge, eventually becoming commander in chief for US forces in the Pacific theater. The remarkable life of Chester Nimitz is presented for young readers.

Fleet Admiral Nimitz learned the importance of integrity and discipline at his grandfather's knee throughout his upbringing at the Steamboat Hotel. These lessons served him well through his training and career. As the commander of the Pacific fleet at the Battle of Midway, Nimitz's natural leadership and years of discipline changed history. Gorgeously illustrated with oil paintings by one of the world's most renowned military painters, this is a captivating history. Nimitz's dedication to his county will inspire all who read about him.
