Review by Roland Green Published in Booklist, Nov 15, 2006 "Two seasoned writers on maritime subjects offer an impressive, long-overdue account of the U.S. Third Fleet's encounter with a savage typhoon off the Philippines in the autumn of 1944. Admiral William "Bull" Halsey was aggressively determined to remain on station in support of General Douglas MacArthur's "I Shall Return" campaign, the weather-reporting network was inadequate, and a number of ships were low on fuel and, not having taken in water ballast to compensate, had become less stable. The results of the storm encounter thereby entailed the loss of three destroyers, more than 800 men, and many aircraft, and many other ships were heavily damaged. Particular emphasis in this account is laid on the exploits of the destroyer escort Tabberer, one of the smallest ships in the fleet. She not only rode out the mountainous seas with a minimum of damage but also rescued most of the survivors of the sunken destroyer Hull. An entirely gripping account and a guaranteed hit with maritime buffs." -Roland Green View this Book review/description on Proquest - May Require CARL EzProxy Login
