Summary, etc.:
Through more than a decade of research and firsthand interviews, Jones follows the crew of the USS Astoria, named after her sunken predecessor lost earlier in the war, called to respond to challenges that its men never could have anticipated. From a powerful typhoon to daring rescue missions in the Philippines, a gallant turn at Iwo Jima, and the ultimate crucible against the Kamikaze, they endured the worst of the final year of the war at sea.
