My Experiences in World War II

Observations and Insights of a Naval Intelligence Officer

This book is Lt. Commander Ellery Sedgwick Jr.’s account of his experiences in the Navy during World War II. They called him Kilroy because he served all over the world - Panama, North Africa, Europe during D-Day and the Pacific. He often has biting criticism of Admirals and Captains for whom the Army was a greater enemy than Germany or Japan. Samuel Eliot Morrison, who wrote the definitive history of the US Navy in World War II, described Sedgwick as the leading expert in the Navy on the Japanese Kamikaze pilots.
