Praise

"One of the finest WWII naval action narratives in recent years, this book follows in the footsteps of Flags of Our Fathers…. exalting American sailors and pilots as they richly deserve…. Reads like a very good action novel."—Publishers Weekly

"Reads as fresh as tomorrow’s headlines…. Hornfischer’s captivating narrative uses previously classified documents to reconstruct the epic battle and eyewitness accounts to bring the officers and sailors to life."—Texas Monthly

"Hornfischer is a powerful stylist whose explanations are clear as well as memorable…. a dire survival-at-sea saga."—Denver Post

"In The Last Stand of the Tin Can Sailors, James Hornfischer drops you right into the middle of this raging battle, with 5-inch guns blazing, torpedoes detonating and Navy fliers dive-bombing…. The overall story of the battle is one of American guts, glory and heroic sacrifice."—Omaha World Herald
