  • The Battle of Leyte Gulf: The Last Fleet Action

  • Twentieth-Century Battles

  • Story
    3.5 out of 5 stars 3

This audiobook is a detailed and comprehensive account of the fighting from both sides. It provides the context of the battle, most obviously in terms of Japanese calculations and the search for "a fitting place to die" and "the chance to bloom as flowers of death."

Would you try another book written by H. P. Willmott or narrated by Jim Seitz?

This is an astonishingly soporific work. It may appeal to naval historians and academics for the theories and points Willmott makes but it is truly dull.

Would you ever listen to anything by H. P. Willmott again?

No

Would you be willing to try another one of Jim Seitz’s performances?

Maybe. Don't think he can blamed for the material he had to perform.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

My reaction? Well, I'll never have trouble sleeping again as long as I have this.

Any additional comments?

ZZZZZZ
