Neptune’s Inferno was superior. Fair warning: Hornfischer’s superb style makes you feel like you were fighting each of those battles. I could damn near smell the cordite and feel the concussion of every hit on the Atlanta.
I was exhausted when I finished, but nobody brings a naval engagement to life like Hornfischer. If you have any interest in understanding World War II combat from the deckplates to the cockpit, put this book at the top of your list.
