As he retires from the U.S. Navy, Admiral William J. Halsey (James Cagney) recalls the most daunting challenge in his career: the Battle of Guadalcanal in 1942. Ordered to replace a close friend as fleet admiral, Halsey faces a wily and fierce adversary in Japan's Admiral Yamamoto, and spends the grueling months of the campaign confounding expectations of both the enemy and his own staff.
