yet Admiral Soemu Toyoda, CinC of the Imperial eastern Navy's mixed fleet, and Vice Admiral Takeo Kurita have a basic thought of what MacArthur and Halsey intend. They shape a super plan to divert Halsey's airplane vendors to allow them to ship in a conflict strength to wipe out MacArthur's troop and provide ships.
either side dedicate greater than 800 ships with the conflict for Leyte Gulf changing into the biggest naval conflict in history.
stuck within the heart is Commander Mike Donovan, skipper of the destroyer USS Matthew. On patrol off Leyte Gulf, Donovan does not observe Halsey's vendors were drawn out of how by means of Toyoda's decoy strength. Now it is simply Donovan and 7 different "tin cans" status among Kurita's strength of 4 battleships, 9 cruisers, and twelve destroyers poised to gun down MacArthur's ships frantically unloading inside of Leyte Gulf.
Worse, Donovan is not acutely aware he is below assault on one other entrance. Ammunition ships are blowing up all around the Pacific at an alarming fee. the realization is clear: Ships within the Leyte Gulf conflict strength are subsequent. Lieutenant Commander John Sabovik of Naval intelligence is able to capture the saboteur and keep Donovan between others. yet there is a trap: as soon as most sensible associates. Sabovik has vowed to kill Donovan. it is not simply because either are in love with Katherine Logan, a scientific intern in California. It is going again years whilst either served on a jinxed cruiser off Guadalcanal.
