I don't know Brad. If you haven't read "Neptune's Inferno" you might put it on your wish list. IMO it gives a valuable new perspective on the campaign and the bravery those sailors showed was pretty darned epic if you ask me. Sailing to the attack through the wreckage and floating sailors from some of your own ships. Freakin' Norman Scott deciding he was tired of the navy getting their clocks cleaned and training his crews in gunnery so they could give better than they got. The Washington's battleship to battleship gun fight. Men staying at their battlestations even as steel burned around them. As bad as the Marines had it, if it hadn't been for sailors, regularly throwing all they had against the Japanese Navy, having their ships shot out from under them then coming back for more. It would have been a whole lot worse.
