Guadalcanal  The Carrier Battles - Carrier Operations in the Solomons, August-October 1942, Hammel, Eric
12 Hammel, Eric Guadalcanal The Carrier Battles - Carrier Operations in the Solomons, August-October 1942
Crown 1987 0517566087 / 9780517566084 First Edition; First Impression Hardcover Very Good in Very Good dust jacket Signed by Author
Author signed bookplate. Dust Jacket now in Mylar Protective Cover and is price clipped. Beautiful scarce collectors grade copy of this book. GUADALCANAL Decision at Sea The Naval Battle of Guadalcanal November 13–15,1942 Eric Hammel Guadalcanal: Decision at Sea is a full-blown examination in vivid detail of the Naval Battle of Guadalcanal, November 13-15, 1942, a crucial step toward America’s victory over the Japanese during World War II. The three-day air and naval action incorporated America’s most decisive surface battle of the war and the only naval battle of this century in which Ameri-can battleships directly confronted and mor-tally wounded an enemy battleship. This American victory decided the future course of the naval war in the Pacific, indeed of the entire Pacific War. Hammel
has brilliantly blended the detailed historical records with personal accounts of many of
the officers and enlisted men involved, creating an engrossing nar-rative of the strategy
and struggle as seen by both sides. He has also included major new insights into crucial
details of the battles, including a riveting account of the American forces’ failure to
effectively use their radar advantage.

Originally published in 1988 as the concluding volume in Eric Hammel’s series of three
independent books focusing on the Guadalcanal campaign and exploring all the elements that made it a turning point of the war in the Pacific, Guadalcanal: Decision at Sea lives up to the high standards and expectations that have marked this author’s many historical
books and articles. Praise for Guadalcanal: Decision at Sea and Eric Hammel “Hammel’s description of surface tactics, naval gunnery, and what happens when the
order to abandon ship is given is vivid and memorable.” —Publishers Weekly

“[Hammel’s] detailed and fast-paced chronicle includes a number of incidents and
anecdotes not found in the more prosaic official histories.” —Sea Power “Meticulously well-researched and scholarly, but still readable. Author Hammel presents
an interesting account of the three-phase battle with frequently gripping ship-by-ship, plane-by-plane, blow-by-blow narratives laden with many human-interest vignettes from
both sides.” —The Hook “[Hammel] mixes action with his history, the result being a highly readable story difficult
to put down.” —Riverside Press-Enterprise

“Hammel’s painstaking reconstruction affords not only a wealth of strategic and tactical
detail but also a full measure of critical judgements. . . . a kaleidoscopic but invariably
intelligible accounts of key actions . . .” —Kirkus Reviews “Hammel does not write dry history. His battle sequences are masterfully portrayed ----Library Journal ; 1.3 x 6.3 x 1.8 Inches; 505 pages; Signed by Author
