The book details the story of the ship herself (a technological marvel), her crew, and her kamikaze adversaries. Maxwell Taylor Kennedy shows how crucial this battle was to victory in the Pacific, even though it was overshadowed by the almost simultaneous surrender of the Nazis in Europe. With this extensive research, Kennedy tells the human story on both sides of the battle.

"A spellbinding account showing that much more than geopolitics was at stake in the Pacific war." (Publishers Weekly)
I liked this Book. I found it very interesting and kept my interest. I would recommend it to anyone.
Yes. I enjoyed the presentation and information contained in this book. Outstanding research on a ship, its crew and the opposing kamikaze pilots who attacked their ship. The research also included the culture and government forces in Japan that led to the systematic use of kamikaze forces.
The researched detail about the courageous actions of the US Navy personnel that saved their ship from total disaster.
He used good acting skills to give life to the printed page.
Learning about how so many of the ship's crew died due to the failed design of the ship's HVAC system and positioning of the pilot's ready room. Also, the details about the Japanese kamikaze pilot and what his remains contained and that they were retrieved.
