Well written account of the pivotal naval battles brought about by the U.S. invasion of Guadalcanal in late 1942.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Neptune's Inferno (Paperback)
James Hornfischer writes in a very readable style and gives up-to-date accounts of the battles that turned the tide permanently in the favour of the United States Navy.
His telling of the Naval battles in which modern warships fought at times almost hull to hull are gripping and exciting giving, like his book 'The last stand of the Tin Can Sailors' a vivid insight into what it must have been like during those horrific encounters.
A refreshing new description of some of the most intense naval battles in history I found this book well worth reading.
Good illustrations and battle maps.
It is a good addition to my Pacific War library.
