    schema:description "As Solberg recalls in this compelling memoir, the Japanese Navy's master plan for repelling American invasions had just been captured, translated, copied, and interpreted - but we know now not fully understood. Reportedly, Admiral Halsey had seen the document and ignored it. Solberg explains that his roommate, Lt. Harris Cox, pored over the plan for several nights and with Solberg suddenly came to realize what the enemy's big surface ships were up to at Leyte."@en ;
    schema:description ". The two young intelligence officers urgently tried to warn the admiral on the night of 24 October that by going north after the Japanese carriers he was doing exactly what the enemy wanted him to do. But Halsey had already retired for the night and their message never got through to him. Had it been heeded, their warning might have had a significant impact on the battle."@en ;
