Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0935553371, Hardcover)

The Battle of the Santa Cruz Islands in the bitter Guadalcanal Campaign was history's fourth carrier-versus-carrier naval battle. Deemed a Japanese victory because U.S. naval forces withdrew, Santa Cruz, on a strategic level, was an American victory because the U.S. Navy was able to hold the line and buy time, while Japan failed to achieve her goal of defeating the U.S. Pacific fleet in a decisive, all-or-nothing battle. Eric Hammel provides an exciting narrative based upon American and Japanese battle reports and the recollections of several aviators and seamen who took part in Santa Cruz. Written in the edge-of-the-seat style that Hammel's readers have enjoyed in nearly 30 acclaimed military history books, Carrier Strike is filled with the latest information on the battle that cost Japan any hope of winning the war in the Pacific.
