Post by Catnip » 23 Mar 2020 18:06

The Defenders of Taffy 3 is a series of books about the Battle Off Samar. There are four books: the first is the narrative account of the battle, then there are translated Japanese action reports, a Japanese Navy glossary and finally a series of timelines for activities of all units in the battle, both aircraft and surface ships. The book has good reviews:
