Abstract:

"This is the story of the Houston as told by a naval scout plane pilot who lived through her battles. The author's own experiences are enhanced by accounts from others involved, and by official and unofficial documents ... He sheds light on new evidence supporting the contention that the Houston and other Allied warships inflicted a heavier toll on the Imperial Navy than the Japanese have ever been willing to admit. His reconstruction of the two battles and the earlier Battle of the Flores Sea provides a detailed account of these engagements"--Publisher's description.
