History has a lot of stories to tell. More than a timeline of people, places, dates and events history has stories of what happened. Stories of how it happened and why it happened. These are the stories of the Pacific naval war. These stories do not belong to me. These stories belong to history.

Beginning with the Spanish-American War (also known as the War of 1898) and ending with the unconditional surrender of the Japanese Empire on September 2, 1945 on the deck of the USS Missouri BB-63. I explore the decades leading up to December 7, 1941. The events that created a perfect storm for war. How those events occurred and why those events happened. I explore the development of the carrier as a ship and how, with its planes, it became a decisive doctrine by the end of the war.

I discuss the attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941; what happened, how it happened and why it happened. I talk about the Doolittle raid, the five major carrier versus carrier battles of the war, battleship versus battleship engagements and the smaller naval battles of the war. I talk about the Battle of Leyte Gulf and its roles in the war and countless other topics involving the Pacific naval. I invite you to listen to my podcasts and videos as I move through history one story at a time.
