About-

"'Hailstorm Over Truk Lagoon' remains the authoritative reference book about the US Navy carrier raid of 17/18 February 1944 on the Japanese naval and supply base Truk, in the East Caroline Islands. This edition presented here adds later information and pictures to the book, and corrects errors. . . . The new discoveries and other changes, as well as new information made it necessary to issue a revised edition of 'Hailstorm over Truk Lagoon.' The text of this edition has been generally updated to 1990. New finds, observations or conditions seen at the popular wrecks during my diving visit in spring 1991 have been incorporated. All this is part of the ongoing research about Truk."
