Morison's 15-volume history of US naval operations in World War II is often regarded as a definitive account. This book distills that material into one volume, and combines historical analysis with the author's personal experience as an admiral in the war.

This is a good read if you are brushing up on naval history of WW2, especially some of the lesser known actions in the Pacific. However, it is not as scholarly as more modern writings on the subject. The author relies on personal experience and interviews, rather than written accounts. I still found it fascinating and educational. ( )

If you can't find what you want in this book, does Samuel Eliot Morison have an offer for you!

As other reviewers have pointed out, Morison authored a comprehensive naval history of American participation in World War II, and then produced this much shorter volume. It's still a very detailed study -- there are histories of the whole war shorter than this single specialized volume -- but things have been left out. Some of them, perhaps, very important. There are times when it can be easy to get lost.

I felt this most, for some reason, in the Atlantic sections. The material on the Pacific war with Japan seemed much clearer. Maybe it's just that the Pacific war had well-defined campaigns and clear-cut battles where it was relatively easy to count up the wins and losses.

This should not be interpreted as a complaint. Morison's ten-volume work is overkill for most people. I wish a few events (e.g. the Battle of Midway) had gotten more space, but for most casual readers, this is the only book on the naval history of the war that you will ever need. ( )

A naval classic ( )

Basically a distilled compendium of his multivolume history of US Naval operations in WWII, "The Two Ocean War" is a perfectly adequate, abriged account, but I do feel the original works are better written and provide more detail and the "sweep" of the campaign. ( )

A well written survey history of the navy in WW2. The author was aboard ship at some of these actions and has a good understanding of what life aboard ship was like. ( )

Although the United States participated heavily in World War I, the nature of that participation was fundamentally different from what it became in World War II.

This book is not part of Samuel Eliot Morison's 15 Volume History of United States Naval Operations in World War II and the author clearly states in the preface of this book, "In this book I have not attempted a uniform condensation of the fifteen volumes, but rather to select the most important battles and campaigns."
