He did make a mistake regarding FJF, though. FJF left on the day outlined in the plan. What he did not do was extend the carrier coverage for an extra day, as Turner and Vandergrift wanted. The latter were culpable in the failure of the amphibs to unload the cargo ships because the Marines assigned to the beach det were far too few, and hundreds of Marines (including Vandergrift) just stood around watching.I thought that it was interesting that the Marine colonel assigned to Fletcher's staff (the man best-placed to balance the needs of the carriers and the Marines, supported the withdrawal of the carriers when they left.Fletcher got fucked over by King, and to this day I've not seen any sign that anyone in power ever confronted King on the replacement of the battle-winning Fletcher with the bungling Noyes and then battle-losing Kincaid.Great videos, though.

I knew nothing about this battle so I really liked the parts in the first video which prompts the viewer to make a decision based on what Fletcher knew at the time. Really puts you in the person's shoes, as any good history does.
