Full Description:

Samuel Eliot Morison’s acclaimed multivolume The History of United States Naval Operations in World War II are being published by the Naval Institute Press with new introductions by noted military historians.  The series, hailed for its accuracy, narrative pace, and detail, provides a complete naval record of the war.  The publication of all fourteen volumes will be completed by March, 2012.

The twelfth volume returns to the Pacific for a dramatic retelling of one of the greatest naval battles of all time. The determining factors in the Battle for Leyte Gulf were superb skill, heroism, and aggressiveness, but confusion, surprise, and faulty assumptions also played significant roles. The Allied victory at Leyte enabled the U.S. Navy to transport troops and base long-range bomber planes in positions so close to Japan that victory was all but assured. Morison's classic account details all of the key engagements surrounding the taking of Leyte.
