U.S. Naval Intelligence and the Imperial Japanese Fleet

Autor: Douglas Ford
Strany: 320
ISBN: 9781591142805

Douglas Ford introduces a new perspective on why the U.S. Navy carried out its Pacific campaigns in the manner it did as he explores the evolution of U.S. intelligence on the combat capabilities of the Japanese Navy. He contends that the U.S. Navy could not accurately determine the fighting efficiency of Japan's forces until it engaged them in actual battle over an extended period. As the conflict progressed, he shows how the Americans relied on information from prisoners and captured weapons and documents, along with first-hand observations by naval personnel of how the Japanese fought and their lack of modern equipment. He lauds the intelligence services for helping disseminate information on the most efficient tactics and weapons to use against the Japanese. Such a comprehensive examination of the impact of intelligence on the conduct of various campaigns is without parallel.

Douglas Ford holds a PhD from the London School of Economics and teaches military history at the University of Salford, UK. He is also the author of Britain's Secret War against Japan, 1937-45.
