THE MEN OF THE GAMBIER BAY. THE AMAZING TRUE STORY OF THE BATTLE OF LEYTE GULF. Uncommon courage under fire as the Gambier Bay became the only U.S. aircraft carrier sunk by naval gunfire.

Click to EnlargeTHE MEN OF THE GAMBIER BAY. THE AMAZING TRUE STORY OF THE BATTLE OF LEYTE GULF. by Hoyt, Edwin, P. This is the vivid story of men at all levels-from the captain to the seamen-and the Japanese they faced in battle, first at the Marianas in June 1944 and finally on October 25, 1944, during the Battle of Leyte Gulf. In that engagement, the Navy bloodied the Japanese sorely, but at a grim price: The Gambier Bay became the only U.S. aircraft carrier in World War II to be sunk by naval gunfire. The story of the Gambier Bay is a tale of uncommon courage under fire. (6 x 9, 254 pages, illustrations) Edwin P. Hoyt has had a long and varied career as a historian. He is a prolific author of books on military and nautical history, including How They Won the War in the Pacific, Yamamoto, and The Last Cruise of the Emden. "Hoyt's is a stirring account and offers a splendid tribute to the officers and men of a brave unit of the Navy's air arm who did their part and did it well." -Daily News, Newport News, Virginia.
