Resumo:

Russell Crenshaw's riveting account of the savage yet largely unknown night battles for the Solomon Islands in early 1943 offers readers a unique insider's perspective from the decks of one of the destroyers that bore the brunt of the struggle.

Not content to rely on his memory as a gunnery officer and later as executive officer of the USS Maury (DD-401), the author conducted extensive searches of official U.S. and Japanese records in pursuit of the unvarnished truth. The result is a vivid, balanced, and detailed narrative of the destroyer's experiences in the Pacific that earned the warship a Presidential Unit Citation and sixteen battle stars. Captain Crenshaw focuses on the bloody campaign from the Battle of Tassafaronga in November 1942 to Vella Gulf in August 1943, and then completes the picture by chronicling the Maury's actions from Pearl Harbor through the Philippines.

In conclusion, armed with facts not known until after the war, Crenshaw discusses the impact of the new technologies of radar and voice radio, the shortcomings of U.S. torpedoes and gunfire, and the devastating effectiveness of Japan's supertorpedo.
