An important retelling of a little-understood story 6. Oktober 2010
Von D. W. McComb - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
For more than five decades, writers have tended to dismiss the Battle of Tassafaronga as an embarrassing hiccup with few implications for the progress of the Pacific war. Here, in contrast, Capt. Russell S. Crenshaw, Jr., reveals it to have been one of the World War II's most interesting naval engagements, filled with both tactical and technical nuances with far-reaching implications. Faced with a complex subject, the author achieves clarity by presenting the American and Japanese perspectives separately and then reconciling them. The result is eminently readable both as a well-crafted whodunit and a cautionary tale, one that should appeal to a wide range of readers from amateur historians to naval professionals. This is a valuable book.

Great case study for the fog of battle 24. November 2010
Von Illinimuck - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This book is an excellent case study of the fog of battle. It replays the battle from the US Navy perspective, using only information available to the participants at the time. Then it does the same from the IJN side. Finally, it puts everything together and tells "what really happened." Included is an in depth analysis of why the participants thought they observed things that did not actually occur. The way the book is laid out really drives the point home. Very well done!

The book is a quick read, long on relevant details, short on fluff.

I'd recommend this book to any Naval officer for professional education. Its format is unique in Naval literature and very useful. Great teaching tool for wardrooms.

I'd highly recommend this book!

Great story - written for the professional 6. Februar 2011
Von W. P. Bringham - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
The "Battle of Tassafarogna" provides a great look at the fog of war and the importance of being prepared for battle.

The book recounts the Battle of Tassafaronga, the last of the four naval battles that occurred in support of the U.S. Marine campaign in Guadalcanal. This particular battle, while a strategic victory for the U.S., was a tactical defeat, in which the U.S. lost several ships to one for the Japanese.

The book has three strengths - (1) it details the fog of war very well, telling the story of the battle first from the U.S. perspective, then from the Japanese view, and finally combining the two viewpoints to tell the "truth" (very different from either the U.S. or Japanese story (2) it states very well the importance of training naval vessels for war at every opportunity, ensuring that they are trained and organized to continue to perform even with the loss of vital ship's systems (propulsion, radar, fire control, etc.), and (3) it analyzes technical shortcomings for U.S. Navy torpedoes and gunfire and highlights the importance of ensuring that all combat systems (to include radar and sonar systems) are operationally and battle tested.

My takeaway - I need to ensure that my ship knows how to operate all of its weapons systems with excellence and that we are able to position to the right place for battle.

I recommend this book to prepare the Naval Officer for the the next war.

Quick read, interesting details 21. März 2011
Von Weesel - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
THe battle was a disaster turned into victory. The USN came of worse materially, but it seems that the spine of the IJN for ops reinforcing Guadalcanal had reached its final straw. I particularly enjoyed the differing perspectives from the part of the opposing commanders, the total confusion of 'fog of war' in a night engagement and the details on the torpedoes and torpedo tactics of both sides. Clearly, all things equal, the Japanese should have come off a lot worse, but the effects of loss of night vision, and even the effect of wrong-colored lighting to hinder night vision, are details that are easily overlooked.

An enjoyable, action-packed and thoughtful read. A good treat for yourself or anyone else interested in modern naval history.

Break out your charts and dividers 1. April 2014
Von Jason M. Atkin - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I wanted so much to enjoy this book, because I find the events surrounding the naval battles at Guadalcanal fascinating. Well, I wound up being disappointed in this book, in that I was hoping for a more practical analysis of not only the battle, but the people involved. I suppose I was hoping for something more along the line of James Hornfishcher's style in this book. Crenshaw's telling of the story concentrates on the dizzying details of "this ship steering this true course, this one turning north at this time and increasing speed at this point..." and on and on about a plethora of other navigational minutia that don't really help hold the reader's interest. The telling of the story kind of got muddy in the middle too, and it wasn't until after I finished the book that I checked Wikipedia and discovered that only 1 Japanese destroyer had been sunk. For whatever reason, I don't think that was clearly explained in the book.

If you're the kind who wants to break out the navigational charts and your dividers, and spread little ship models on the floor to try to reproduce the battle step by step, then this book will certainly prove useful. If you want a more insightful telling of the naval battles of Guadalcanal, definitely go for Neptune's Inferno by Hornfischer.
