Gough, Richard. This is not so much a history as a thematic review. Ford touches on the U. He also makes the good point that while the intelligence may have been flawed, the U.

Studies in Intelligence book series
There was a paucity of intelligence about the Japanese enemy. In part that was due to the earlier misappreciation, but it was also the product of a war plan that assumed the need for a protracted war, which led to a long-term intelligence view. The enemy was elusive because of the intelligence uncertainties, and the U.
Navy had to learn by trial and error how to fight the Japanese to advantage. The result was the eventual development of a new vision of the adversary, a different strategic culture. Ford provides extended commentaries on how observations of Japanese behavior in various battles led to notions of how to fight them more effectively, the evolution of specific tactics, and growing confidence as the enormous industrial weight of the United States made itself felt on the battlefield.

A certain number of intelligence documents are cited but their number pales next to the volume of combat narratives and lessons learned summaries. Because American naval officers had a certain problem-solving attitude, such observations led to improvisations, then solutions expressed in combat tactics. From the use of radar to the evolution of the ring formation used by U. The enemy was elusive, but it was gradually discovered and countered by close observation. The system for learning from experience, as Ford rightly says, was a product of organizational culture--and something the U.
Navy did very well. Expressed in a certain strategic culture, that practice became fundamental to the achievement and consolidation of U. Mentions of the Battle of Midway, of which there are eleven, never include the work of U. Almost all of them concern aspects of aerial operations. In fact, the intelligence from Station Hypo and the name of Commander Joseph Rochefort are not mentioned in this book.
