Joe Rochefort's War: The Odyssey of the Codebreaker Who Outwitted Yamamoto at Midway Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Elliot Carlson's award-winning biography of Capt. Joe Rochefort is the first to be written about the officer who headed Station Hypo, the U.S. Navy's signals monitoring and cryptographic intelligence unit at Pearl Harbor, and who broke the Japanese navy's code before the Battle of Midway. His conclusions, bitterly opposed by some top Navy brass, are credited with making the U.S. victory possible and helping to change the course of the war. The author tells the story of how opponents in Washington forced Rochefort's removal from Station Hypo and denied him the Distinguished Service Medal recommended by Admiral Nimitz.

Elliot Carlson is a longtime journalist who has worked for such newspapers and magazines as the Honolulu Advertiser, Wall Street Journal, Newsweek, and, most recently, the AARP Bulletin.
