The Japanese at Leyte Gulf

The Japanese at Leyte Gulf

By James A. Field, Jr.

Princeton University Press, 1947, 162 pp.

The author has performed the unique feat of describing, in accurate detail, the action of a defeated fleet in a great naval battle within less than four years of the event. Mr. Field, who was present at Leyte Gulf, has based his account on data revealed by Japanese naval officers and in official Japanese documents.
