Fresh from his exploits in Corregidor, Navy lieutenant Todd Ingram is back in this sequel to John J. Gobbell's The Last Lieutenant. As the war in the South Pacific heats up, Lieutenant Ingram gets a new assignment to the destroyer U.S.S. Howell, on which he will serve as executive officer. Thrown into two epic naval battles of World War II, the battle of Cape Esperance and the battle of the Santa Cruz Islands, a young but already battle-weary Todd Ingram is also in the middle of a personal nightmare: his girlfriend, Army nurse Helen Durand, is trapped behind enemy lines, fighting for the resistance on Mindanao. With Soviet espionage activity hindering his attempted rescue of Helen, Lieutenant Ingram is at an impasse. In danger of losing both the woman he loves and a war in which he has fought so valiantly, Ingram puts his life on the line for world perilously close to collapse.

John J. Gobbell writes of what he knows. His expertise shines through in this technically exact and thoroughly riveting tale of the harrowing battles fought between imperial Japan and the United States in the South Pacific.
