U.S.N. Admiral Chester W. Nimitz, 1944-45

Chester William Nimitz entered the Naval Academy in 1905 and was an excellent student, graduating with distinction. Afterwards he joined the USS Ohio and sailed her to the Far East – his first but certainly not his last engagement with the region. The passing years saw Nimitz further his knowledge and influence through numerous assignments and promotions. When Japan attacked Pearl Harbor, President Roosevelt chose Nimitz to take command over 28 more senior flag officers. FDR ordered Nimitz to, “get the hell out to Pearl Harbor and don’t come back until the war is won.” At the height of the Pacific War, Fleet Admiral Chester W. Nimitz commanded more than two million men and women, 5,000 ships and 20,000 planes.
