In June, 1944, American and Japanese carrier fleets made their way through the Philippine Sea, both hoping to take control of the vital Marianas Islands. When they met, they embarked upon a naval engagement that escalated into the most spectacular aircraft carrier battle in history. Here is the true account of the battle, told from both sides - by those who were there. Drawing upon numerous interviews as well as official sources, Clash of the Carriers is an unforgettable testimonial to the bravery of those who fought and those who died in a battle that will never be forgotten. --publisher's website.

One would suppose that a book subtitled "the true story...." would be opinionated, but for this book that would be an understatement. The book was written in 2005, but the language was straight out of a 1940's newsreel. It was really hard to get past the propaganda dialogue.
