A gripping history of our Navy's finest hours!

Hornfischer's book will take you from the commissioning of the U.S.S. Samuel B. Roberts to her last moments, with a great deal of insight about the men and ships of the U.S. Navy's Taffy 3 task group. He uses official histories and documents as well as interviews with survivors to piece together the events of the Battle off Samar, as well as the events unfolding during the rest of the Battle of Leyte Gulf. From the moment the U.S.S. Johnston begins it's attack against the Japanese battle line until the moment the last survivors are fished from the sea you will be amazed by the courage--and just plain guts--of our sailors and airmen. If you enjoy U.S. or military history and have not yet read of this desperate fight against OVERWHELMING odds, this book will appeal to you. I know when I was done reading the book I took a moment of silent contemplation of and thanks to our greatest generation.

Great Book
