KIRKUS REVIEW

A definite account of the largest naval engagement in history, the two day encounter of the Imperial Fleet and Halsey's Third and Kinkaid's Seventh Fleets, which gave the U.S. undisputed command of the Pacific. The report is based on captured Japanese records and interviews as well as American information. These are the days that destroyed the Japanese fleet, told in terms of personalities, tactics, fleet complements. It makes fascinating, readable naval history.
