OTD in 1945, FADM Ernest King issued his final report on Navy operations during WWII. He credited victory in the Pacific to overwhelming seapower and America’s industrial might. He used this graph to illustrate the annihilation of Japan’s Navy as the US Navy grew from 1941 to 1945.

Interesting graph which can also been read in FEET ADMIRAL KING: A NAVAL RECORD by Fleet Admiral Ernest J. King and Walter Muir Whitehill.
The industrial might of the United States made a massive contribution to the Allied victory in World War II.
Thank you, Mario, for bringing this graph to the attention of Station HYPO’s readers.
