Detailed knowledge of brother officers

Admiral Chester Nimitz brought to his new job a number of advantages, including experience, a detailed knowledge of his brother officers, and a sense of inner balance and calm that steadied those around him.

He had the ability to pick able subordinates and the courage to let them do their jobs without interference. He molded such disparate personalities as the quiet, introspective Raymond A. Spruance and the ebullient, aggressive William Halsey, Jr. into an effective team.

We were fortunate to have these men serving in the Navy at this time in history.
