Description: This epic story opens at the hour the Greatest Generation went to war on December 7, 1941, and follows four US Navy ships and their crews in the Pacific until their day of reckoning three years later with a far different enemy: a deadly typhoon.
In December 1944, while supporting General MacArthur's invasion of the Philippines, Admiral William "Bull" Halsey neglected the Law of Storms, placing the mighty US Third Fleet in harm's way. Drawing on extensive interviews with nearly every living survivor and rescuer, as well as many families of lost sailors, transcripts and other records from naval courts of inquiry, ships' logs, personal letters, and diaries, Bruce Henderson finds some of the story's truest heroes exhibiting selflessness, courage, and even defiance.
