The movie makes no mention of Admiral Fletcher, who was in overall command of the task force and, as such, was Admiral Spruance's commanding officer. Fletcher was forced to transfer his flag during the battle, depriving him of the logistical ability to stay abreast of events in real time. When Spruance then asked Fletcher what his orders were Fletcher replied, "None. Will conform to your motions," effectively putting Spruance in command. But that didn't happen until after the battle started. See more »
