The book gives a gripping account of "OPERATION SIDEWINDER", a superb battle plan for the quick and deadly PT (Patrol Torpedo) boats set in the Solomon Island chain in late 1942 during the Marines' fierce and bitter fighting for Guadalcanal and its vital Henderson Field. All important people, dates, places and events are authentic and historically accurate. The story begins in the Oval Office of the President of the United States, where initial measures are taken by powerful historic figures, steps that defy reader conclusions, and quickly gathers strength and direction as it draws the reader along with its gradually increasing pace without disclosing the culmination of Operation Sidewinder until the inevitable action EXPLODES! The ending is a shocker!
