Reviews - What do customers think about A LEADER BORN: The Life of Admiral John Sidney McCain, Pacific Carrier Commander?

Excellent Story of WW II Leadership in the Pacific  Nov 14, 2006
An excellent story of one of the senior commanders of the Navy in the Pacific during World War II. It also covers a lot of the interplay between the admirals as Admiral King selected men for high command positions.

This book is a lot more forgiving of King than a lot of recent history that talks instead about his refusal to institute convoys along the American coast and left it open for U-boats. Cain was a King man. He knew, worked with, supported, and in turn was supported by King.

Cain also appears to have been a supurb commander, and to have instituted a great set of attributes in his children and even grandchildren. This is particularily interesting as Cain III appears to be making a decision about running for Congress.
 
A Leader Born  Nov 5, 2006
A LEADER BORN: The Life of Admiral John Sidney McCain, Pacific Carrier Commander
by Alton Gilbert.

Captain Gilbert has shown a keen insight into the leadership qualities of Admiral McCain. He also captures the complex interrelationship between Admiral McCain and his contemporary Naval commanders during World War II.
