More About This Book

Overview

In this twelfth volume of the definitive HISTORY OF THE UNITED STATES NAVAL OPERATIONS IN WORLD WAR II, Admiral Morison records the penultimate phase of the Pacific War. The Battle for Leyte Gulf is not only the greatest naval battle of all time, but one of the most controversial engagements in the American War in the Pacific. This account makes the full story now available to the public for the first time.

The Japanese sent three separate fleets to attack the American naval and landing forces in Leyte Gulf. Ozawa's Northern Force was demolished by Halsey's Third Fleet, with Mitscher in tactical command; the Southern Force was wiped out by Seventh Fleet in what probably will be the last battle line engagement in naval history, the night action in Suigao Straight; the Center Force, although lucky to surprise off Samar a vulnerable group of American escort carriers under Rear Admiral Clifton sprague, was thrown back in confusion and suffered grave damage.

    The Greatest Naval Battle of All Time

    LEYTE is the story of what many consider to be the greatest naval battle of all time and it is also a tale which focuses on some of the most famous personalities of World War II such as MacArthur, Nimitz, Halsey, Stillwell, Arnold and Lemay. Morison had a small but capable staff assisting him in his efforts for this book as well as the other volumes in the series. One of his staff members actually sailed up to Leyte in Vice Admiral Wilkinson's flagship. In 1950 Morison himself visited Japan and discussed the Battle for Leyte Gulf with leading Japanese participants. LEYTE is one of the most important studies in the HISTORY OF UNITED STATES NAVAL OPERATIONS IN WORLD WAR II.
