"Aims to sort out the discrepancies that have crept in over time to standard accounts of the battle ... a confused and complex night action. Of special interest is Tully's exploitation of fresh source materials." Malcolm Muir, Jr., author of Black Shoes and Blue Water: Surface Warfare in the United States Navy, 1945-1975 "With copious endnotes, an extensive and interesting bibliography and thorough index, this book is worth buying by serious students of the Pacific War and for institutional libraries with a strong military history focus." --The Journal of Naval History
