The publisher notes that the book presents “a compelling portrait of the controversial admiral widely regarded as the founder of the modern Navy, implementing major strategic innovations that endure to this day, especially in his campaign against racism and sexism throughout the fleet-a portrait of leadership that is essential for our time.”
