In response to ATJ's comment:
Muz, Irish and Babe, each of you may enjoy reading a book that I'm just finishing that I got as a Christmas present from my daughter-in-law - The Admirals by historian Walter R. Borneman. Book is about the 4 eventual 5-start Admirals who won the war at sea during WWII: Halsey, Nimitz, King and Leahy.
Exceptionally well written, factually detailed and tremendously readable with more than a couple of eye-openers. Interesting discussion of MacArthur and his relationship with Halsey.
And what was Halsey's nickname?
Bull, because he liked to hit them hard, fast, and often who doesn't know that?
