command in this rousing tale of an epic battle You ll marvel at the bravery of the men on a very small ship up against the main battle fleet of the Japanese Imperial Navy.Evan Thomas, New York Times bestselling author of Sea of Thunder and Ike s Bluff In this gripping page turner, Wukovits chronicles one of the greatest stories in naval history, when tiny, outnumbered, outgunned destroyers and destroyer escorts went toe to toe with Japanese battleships and cruisers One of those ships paid the ultimate price, but played a key role in turning the tide in this seemingly one sided engagement VariousOn October 25, 1944, the Samuel B Roberts, along with the other twelve vessels comprising its unit, Taffy 3, stood between Japan s largest battleship force ever sent to sea, and General Douglas MacArthur s transports inside Leyte Gulf Faced with the surprise appearance of than twenty Japanese battleships, cruisers, and destroyers, including the Yamato, at seventy thousand tons the most potent battlewagon in the world, the twelve hundred ton Samuel B Roberts turned immediately into action with six other ships The ship churned straight at the enemy in a near suicidal attempt to deflect the potent foe and buy time for MacArthur s forces Of 563 destroyers constructed during World War II, the Samuel B Roberts was the only one sunk, going down with guns blazing in a duel reminiscent of the Spartans at Thermopylae or Davy Crockett s Alamo defenders The men who survived faced a horrifying three day nightmare in the sea, where they battled a lack of food and water, scorching sun, numbing night time cold, and nature s most feared adversary sharks The battle would go down as history s greatest sea clash, the Battle of Samar the dramatic climax of the Battle of Leyte Gulf. crew English Spanish Dictionary WordReference crew Translation to Spanish, pronunciation, and forum discussions JCrew Clothes, Shoes Accessories for Women, Men Kids Shop JCrew the Highest
