fcoq, Adakian, samlorr
Explicações
Adakian: This work covers what is probably the most lopsided engagements fought by the United States Navy in its history—the Battle of Leyte Gulf. James Hornfischer really brings the story to life and places the reader on board the escort carriers, destroyers, and destroyer escorts of Taffy 3 as they struggle to survive an attack by the Imperial Japanese Navy’s heaviest surface warships.

Explicações
LibraryCin: Written in 1959, the book is based on questionnaires and interviews with many people who were there. We get to see what happened from various points of view – the Allies, the Germans, and even some of the French civilians living in Normandy at the time of the attack.
