Description

The three-day air and naval action incorporated America’s most decisive surface battle of the war and the only naval battle of this century in which Ameri-can battleships directly confronted and mor-tally wounded an enemy battleship. This American victory decided the future course of the naval war in the Pacific, indeed of the entire Pacific War. Hammel
has brilliantly blended the detailed historical records with personal accounts of many of
the officers and enlisted men involved, creating an engrossing nar-rative of the strategy
and struggle as seen by both sides. He has also included major new insights into crucial
details of the battles, including a riveting account of the American forces’ failure to
effectively use their radar advantage.
