ABC was Eisenhower's naval commander for the landings in North Africa and Sicily, and witnesssed the surrender of the Italian fleet. He became First Sea Lord in October 1943 and saw the war at sea to its conclusion.;Drawing on a number of sources, this work includes a look at intelligence files not available to earlier writers.
