* IslandBase: Many, many, Japanese ones, several of which the Americans take due to their vital locations.



* NavalBlockade: Done successfully by the US Navy and Army Air Air Force on Japan by early 1945, where submarines, air attacks, and mine-laying ships and planes manage to almost completely cut off the Japanese mainland from the rest of their empire.

Added DiffLines:

* EpicShipOnShipAction: Played straight in the Pacific Theater, with several surface engagements between US and Japanese ships taking place between 1942 to as late as 1944.
** Averted in the Atlantic, where the Germans refuse to deploy their highly valued battleship ''Tirpitz'' against the US Navy's brand new ''Iowa'' and ''South Dakota''-class ships.

Added DiffLines:

* RealLife/CoolBoat: Several. It wouldn't be a history of the US Navy without them, both Allied and Axis.

* [[YanksWithTanks Yanks With Carriers, Battleships, Cruisers, and Destroyers]]: Of course, given that it's a history of the United States Navy at war.
* UsefulNotes/WorldWarII: Duh. While the main focus is, of course, in the Pacific, the Atlantic and Mediterranean theaters also get some focus in their respective books.

* DatedHistory: Morison's personal loyalty to the US Navy and close proximity to the actual events meant he either did not have access to or give sufficient credit to Axis primary sources, some of which did not resurface until years after the war. As a result he was sometimes forced to treat US Navy suppositions about enemy actions and intentions as fact and some of those assumptions have not withstood the test of time. This is especially apparent in his account of the Battle Off Samar which is obviously colored by his evident contempt for Admiral Kurita and cannot be reconciled with the action reports of the Japanese ships involved. By and large though he managed to get things right if he had good sources.



* FlauntingYourFleets

to:

* FlauntingYourFleets FlauntingYourFleets: and not just any fleet but the largest and most powerful ever assembled: by late 1944 the US Pacific fleet alone outnumbered and outgunned every other navy in the world put together.

* PurpleProse
PurpleProse: Morison was a man of his time and heavily influenced by the classics
* RatedMForManlyRatedMForManly: Gender equality was not even a consderation in the mid twentieth century



* TropeCodifier: One of the first UsefulNotes/WorldWarII naval histories and still refered to. If World War II naval history was [[SeriousBusiness a religion]] then this would be its [[SacredScripture "Bible".]]
