“The BATTLE Of LEYTE GULF” 23–26 October 1944. By Thomas J. Cutler. The dramatic full story of this, the greatest naval battle of all-time––based on the latest research. The newest and perhaps the best book on this fascinating subject. American submarine USS Darter and carrier USS Gambier Bay are among the lost in this epic sea battle. Includes two chapters detailing the events of submarines Darter and Dace and their first attacks in this historic battle. The Japanese committed virtually every operational fighting ship on the lists of the Imperial Japanese Navy, including battleships Yamato and Musashi, which were the most powerful war ships ever built. Likewise the American’s too used everything from PT boats, submarines, battleships and aircraft carriers. Every facet of naval warfare (air, surface, subs, and amphibious) was involved in this struggle. 1994 first edition Hardback with dust jacket. 343 pages, 22 black and white photos, 7 maps and an index.
