Named for her sunken predecessor lost earlier in the war, USS Astoria was under the command of U.S. Navy Captain George Dyer, who vowed to return to action after suffering a horrific wound. While overseeing a contentious crew of battle-weary sailors, Dyer led his men through a typhoon and the ultimate test against the Kamikaze at Okinawa. Drawing upon letters, diaries, and memoirs—and presenting 80 photos—Brent Jones tells the harrowing yet heroic story of this valiant "vengeance ship."
