A story of bravery against overwhelming odds Nov 29, 2007
I have been interested in Taffy 3 for a long time. This book gives all the details of the events of the battle of Samar (Leyte Gulf) during WWII. The efforts of the seamen and officers and their courageous action against overwhelming odds won the battle for the US. This book is packed with detail - maybe more than the ordinary person would want. There are good summaries of the actions of Taffy 3 available elsewhere. Still, I am very glad to have this book.
