From the author of the bestselling Abandon Ship! comes a classic work of World War II history.

Richard F. Newcomb is one of the true masters of military storytelling. The Battle of Savo Island is the story of the opening engagement of the Solomon Islands campaign, a unique chapter in naval history. It was the first surface encounter for a coordinated American force in nearly half a century and a very bad start. Courage and will were never lacking, but the Imperial Japanese Navy was about to hand the U.S. Navy the bitterest defeat in its history.
