Opis produktu:

The dramatic account of two American warships in the South Pacific, this book follows the USS Astoria (CA-34) and USS Chicago (CA-29) during the late summer of 1942, when both participated in the early days of the critical battle for Guadalcanal. Drawing on a variety of firsthand accounts, some previously unpublished, the book tells the story from the perspective of the men aboard each ship, transporting readers inside the gun turrets, behind the lookout binoculars, and below deck as the battle rages. Individual stories of heroism, sacrifice and survival unfold as both vessels meet their fates in the South Pacific.
 

Retail developer John J. Domagalski lives in the Chicago area. His articles have appeared in World War II History Magazine. 

 

 

This is a wonderful book. The author has conducted comprehensive research which has resulted in excellent attention to historical detail which brings out how seemingly minor occurrences can have profound impact on the course of battle. The personal observations of men who were there are particularly compelling and provide a rich, powerful picture of the personal side of the conflict.
