Admiral Halsey's Task Force and the Great Pacific Typhoon
By (author) Buckner F. Melton, Jr.
Sea Cobra by Buckner F. Melton, Jr.
Book DescriptionOne of the costliest battles of World War II happens to be one of the least known. After failing to stop the attack of Admiral Takeo Kurita at Leyte Gulf, Admiral "Bull" Halsey made a desperate attempt to engage the Japanese Imperial Navy in a full-scale battle. Acting against better judgment and in a desperate attempt at redemption, Halsey led his crew into the raging path of a typhoon, which resulted in the loss of nearly one thousand sailors-the most costly mission of the Pacific war.
