CHESTER NIMITZ
Photograph of the Chief of Naval Operations at his home with a naval themed weather vane in the background, signed to Buckland Abbey
Photograph signed: "To Mr. Cummings - of/Buckland Abbey -/Aloha/from California/CW Nimitz", 8x10 matted to an overall size of 10x12½. Chester W. Nimitz (1885-1966) assumed command of the US Pacific Fleet on December 25, 1941, eighteen days after the debacle at Pearl Harbor. At the Battle of Midway (June 3-5, 1942), forces under Nimitz's command turned the tide of the conflict with a brilliant victory against a vastly superior Japanese fleet, a triumph variously styled as "the incredible victory" and "the battle that ruined Japan." As Commander-in-Chief of the Pacific Fleet (CINCPAC), Nimitz was in overall command of US land, air and naval forces in the Pacific theatre. (Army General Douglas MacArthur exercised similar control over combined forces in the Southwest Pacific.) Nimitz was promoted to the newly created five-star rank, Admiral of the Fleet, in December 1944. On September 2, 1945, he was present at the Japanese surrender on the USS Missouri in Tokyo Bay. He served as Chief of Naval Operations from 1945-1947. Nimitz was the last living US naval officer to hold 5-star rank. Matting heavily toned and worn on corners and edges. Slightly soiled. Faint stains across matting. Otherwise, fine condition.
