I really enjoyed this one. The book is a blow-by-blow account of what happened at Leyte in October of 1944. The accounts of the Leyte Gulf naval battle are sprinkled with a little bit of first person recollections, which makes the battle personal (for both the Japanese and Americans). The only issue I took was with the author's attempts to be virtually poetic...not my kind of reading. These attempts are few and far between, so the book still gets 4 stars in my eyes.
