The second episode continues the examination of Admiral Harold R. Stark as Director of Naval Operations prior to the attack on Pearl Harbor.
We hear the shocking testimonies given by Admiral Stark and Admiral Kimmel during the questioning by the Joint Committee.
Admiral Forrestal, in a meaningless and denigrating epitaph to the results of the Naval Court’s investigation, on August 15, 1945 – within days of the Japanese surrender – wrote that the tarnished CNO, Admiral Harold R. Stark, “... shall not hold any position in the United States Navy which requires the exercise of superior judgment.”
This week's episode is based on the book The Indictment of the Pearl Harbor 5, by Donald J. Young, which is available on Amazon.com.
