This book contains an exceptional detailed account of the Battle of Leyte Gulf, focusing on the engagement off the coast of Somar. This battle should be taught to school children in order to demonstrate the resilience of America's finest generation. The book is well written conclusion to a lot of hard work and research. I encourage any one with an interest in Naval history to give it a chance.
The reader does a great job.

This is an excellent account of a little know battle. The Sailors and Commanders do an impossible task with next to nothing. They really are the greatest heros ever born. The reader is great.

This is an excellent story of WWII naval combat at the very sharpest end as well as relating one of the USNs finest and most courageous actions. There is huge tension and drama of a real David vs Goliath battle in which US DDs, DDEs & CVEs were surprised by an overwhelming Japanese surface force and yet through immense bravery and determination won the day. If you're interested in WWII and/or naval history this is a superb story.
The only fly in the ointment is the narrator, he sounds more like a robot than a person on several occasions although you do get used to his style it does grate somewhat. Listen to a clip before buying just in case.
