In January 1944, the US Navy warships of Task Force 58 began advancing across the Central Pacific, attacking the defenses of the Empire of Japan, island by island. A year and a half later, the ships were anchored in Tokyo Harbor for the signing of Japan's unconditional surrender. Experience this remarkable group of ships' dramatic combat operations as seen through the eyes of Signalman 1st Class William Kelly from his vantage point high above the decks on the signal bridge of the heavy cruiser CA-69 the USS Boston. Read as the great offensive campaigns unfold: the capture of the Marshall & Mariana Islands, the operations to liberate the Philippines; Iwo Jima, Okinawa and the attacks on Japan itself. Experience the devastating Typhoon Cobra. Read about the famous Battles of the Philippine Sea, the Marianas Turkey Shoot; the nail-biting tow of the crippled heavy cruisers Canberra and Houston damaged in the Battle of Formosa, and the tragic sinking of the Indianapolis.
