About the book:

Adm. Joseph Mason Reeves (1872-1948) took command of the U.S. Navy's nascent carrier arm during a critical period, transforming it from a small auxiliary command in support of the battleline into a powerful strike force that could attack far in advance of the fleet. During the 1920s and 1930s, he emerged as the most important flag officer in American naval aviation. Until the carrier commanders of World War II proved their mettle, Reeve's expertise in the use of the aircraft carrier in naval tactics was unequalled. He retired in 1936, but the Navy recalled him to active duty in May 1940. He served another six years, making his career as an officer not only one of the most significant but also one of the longest in American naval history. All the Factors of Victory is the first full-length biography of this eminent naval officer.
