Chester W. Nimitz was born at Fredericksburg, TX on February 24, 1885. Nimitz's father died before he was born and as a young man he was influenced by his grandfather Charles Nimitz who had served as a merchant seaman. Nimitz originally wished to attend West Point but was unable to do so as no appointments were available. He was informed that one competitive appointment was available to Annapolis so he enlisted.
In the Navy he served a variety of positions eventually becoming the first Fleet Admiral. Nimitz, led the pacific theater in the most important battles of WW II. While General Douglas MacArthur, advanced through New Guinea, Nimitz began a campaign of "island hopping" across the Pacific and was poised to invade Japan just before the atomic bombs were dropped ending the war with Japan.
