    He smoked.
    He twice drove his fleet into typhoons, first in December 1944 and again in June 1945. Several ships capsized and hundreds of servicemen died.
    He was investigated after the second typhoon incident and it was determined he took 'inappropriate actions' in both cases.
    He often made racial slurs about the Japanese.
    He had an intense hatred of the Japanese, clearly from a racial point of view and not a military one.

    One of his hats was up for auction on eBay for $500.
    His face looks weird.
    He graduated from the United States Naval Academy (1904).
    Halsey and Douglas MacArthur developed what is known as 'the island hopping campaign,' in which US forces invaded islands one by one in the Pacific, occupied by Japan.
    Under his command, US Naval forces practically destroyed the Japanese Navy at the Battle of Leyte Gulf. It remains the largest Naval battle in history (1944).
    He was involved with some of the most successful amphibious landings of WW II.
    A skin disease caused him to miss the battle of Midway.
    The Japanese used his flagship, the USS Missouri, to sign their official surrender from WW II on (September 2, 1945).
