WWII's darkest naval battles
Thousands of miles from friendly ports, the US Navy had finally managed to complete the capture of Guadalcanal from the Japanese in early 1943. Now, the Allies had to keep up the offensive momentum won at such a high cost. This is the central plot line running through Dark Waters, Starry Skies—beginning with the Japanese Operation I-Go and the American ambush of Admiral Yamamoto and continuing on to the Allied invasion of New Georgia.
Using first-hand accounts from both sides, this fast-paced history vividly recreates all the terror and drama of the nighttime naval battles during this phase of the Solomons campaign and the ferocious firestorms that many Marines faced as they disembarked from their landing crafts.
