I read this book a while back and really enjoyed it. It's a very dramatic and exciting story similar to 'A Night To Remember.' The only difference being that both sides (the Americans and Japanese) know that the ship is doomed. Im really attracted to this kind of story telling and feel that other navy fans and historians will enjoy this book.
