Product Details


“An enthralling book to read… I thoroughly recommend it.”—The Naval Review
“This fascinating book offers yet another story of the Navy’s victory over the combined Japanese fleet during the U.S. invasion of the Philippines in October 1944… [Sears] has added an invaluable perspective to naval history.”—Proceedings
“A valuable addition to the military history of the Second World War. By telling the story through the voices of survivors of the naval battles of Leyte Gulf, David Sears has given us a uniquely authentic perspective. The scenes are so vividly described that I felt as if I were an observer at this turning point in the war against Japan.”—Allan Topol, author of Enemy of My Enemy

“The men came from across America, with little in common beyond a strong desire to serve their nation. Their personal accounts of valor in the face of seemingly insurmountable odds offer a window into a defining battle in our nation’s history.”—Admiral Vern Clark, USN (ret.)
