Moderate wear to extremities. Introduction THE SECOND WORLD WAR had been over for ten months when Fleet Admiral Ernest J. King boarded a Navy transport plane in Washington, D.C., on a June day in 1946. He was on his way to England, to receive an honorary Doctor of Civil Law degree from Oxford University. King was retired now, after four years of wartime service as Commander in Chief, U.S. Fleet, and Chief of Naval Operations. He had commanded the largest Navy in the world: more than eight thousand ships, nearly twenty-four thousand aircraft, over three million naval officers and sailors, and a half million Marines. But King was as much thinker as active leader. He had directed the war together with his colleagues on the Joint Chiefs of Staff: Fleet Admiral William D. Leahy, General of the Army George C. Marshall, and General of the Army Henry H. Arnold. Armed forces officers would never again exert the power these four men had wielded in defeating Germany, Japan, and Italy. Civilians would henceforth run wars. Great Britain had been America's ally. The wartime coalition had succeeded in large measure because the Combined Chiefs of Staff (the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the British Chiefs of Staff) had worked so well together. Yet the British had regarded King more as adversary than ally. Perhaps some of their mutual hostility stemmed from their divergent heritages. King's family had been working-class Scots and Englishmen who had immigrated to northern Ohio in the late nineteenth century. King had been born in a laborer's cottage, reared in a railroad yard, and educated in a small-town school. His British colleagues were aristocrats by inheritance or by inclination, defenders of the British Empire who perpetuated the 1672 injunction of Charles II to Eouis XIV: "It is the custom of the British to command at sea." 609 pages.
