A paper edition of Morison's rewrite (not a condensation) of his classic 15-volume History of the United States operations in World War II (cited in BCL3). The cloth edition was published in 1963. A fine scholar, Morison possesses a good deal of poet: of the glorious 4th of June, 1942 at the Battle of Midway he writes that the carrier Kaga "sank hissing into a 2600-fathom deep". A great history elegantly written. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.
