Solid account of one of the many encounters off of Guadalcanal. The author was a junior officer present, but makes no actual reference to his personal perspective of the battle. He points out some of the errors in command with reasonable explanations for why these options were chosen or when applicable, just happened. Recommended for history or naval types but probably not unless the reader is an already interested party. Having said all that, I have read a healthy amount of the written material on this subject and enjoyed this book. ( )
