Publisher's Summary

The Battle of Leyte Gulf was the greatest naval battle of World War II and the largest ever engagement of battleships. The battle was fought near the Philippine islands of Leyte, Samar, and Luzon, from October 23-26, 1944. This engaging work gives a comprehensive account of the composition, strategies, and actions of the Japanese and the US Navy in October 1944. 

The Japanese sent virtually every fighting ship of the Imperial Navy into battle against the combined American and Australian forces. The battle comprised four main engagements, in the Sibuyan Sea, Surigao Strait, off Cape Engaño, and off Samar. The Pulitzer Prize winner C. Vann Woodward provides a splendid account of this great victory by the US Navy that concluded the naval war in the Pacific.

Full of information, but hard to follow

The author was extremely detailed and thorough, but that also made it a chore to follow and make a mental picture of what was going on.
