Overview

Benjamin Crowninshield Bradlee (born August 26, 1921) was Vice President at-large of the Washington Post, and was the former Editor in-chief of the Washington Post during the Watergate scandal and served from 1968 to 1991. Bradlee went to court to challenge the federal government saying that it was not against the law to print the truth; meaning the publications of Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein. Bradlee graduated Harvard a year early in 1942 so that he could go to war, because they all knew that it was going to come to them. He graduated college, got married and took his naval exams all on the same day. His first wife was Jean Saltonstall of the Boston Brahmin Satonstall family; after he got married he immediately shipped out and didn't see his wife again for two years.

World War II

Bradlee's parents, Frederick Josiah Bradlee, Jr. and Chevalier Josephine de Gersdorff, always knew where he was because they had a friend in the Navy who was an admiral, and he was on a total of nine different destroyers during the war.

From 1942-1945 Bradlee fought in a total of thirteen naval battles, which included Guadalcanal, Saipan, Tinian, Guam, and the Battle of Leyte Gulf, which was the greatest naval battle in the history of mankind. The following battles are the battles that he fought in order: Solomon Islands Campaign: First Battle of Tulagi, Battle of Vella Lavella, and the Battle of Bouganville; he would arrive at Guadalcanal with the Second Fleet; the Philippines Campaign: the Battle of Leyte Gulf, also known as the Second Battle of the Philippine Sea, the Battle of Mindoro, the Battle of Manila, the Battle of Gurigao Straits, and the Invasion of Lingayen Gulf; the Mariana and Palau Islands Campaign: the Battle of Saipan, the Battle of Tinian and the Battle of Guam.
