    Added a couple of PTO books. First one is a book I had 20 or so years ago, read, and then sold off. Bad mistake as it took me forever to fins a copy at a reasonable price to replace it. The book is 'Kaigun: Strategy, Tactics, and Technology in the Imperial Japanese Navy 1887-1941' by Evans & Peattie. It is a Naval Institute Press book, and is 661 pages of important information covering the aspects of what made the IJN such a formidable foe in WW2. Illustrated with portrait photos of personalities, line drawings of ships, planes, and various charts. Highly recommended. The second acquisition is a highly detailed study, 'The Battle Off Samar: Taffy III at Leyte Gulf'; A detailed account of the heroic naval battle between Rear Admiral Clifton A.F. Sprague's Task Unit 77.4.3 and Vice Admiral Takeo Kurita's Imperial Japanese Navy Centre Force on Wednesday, 25 October 1944'. Written by John Cox and first published in 2010, this is a 5th edition. It is 268 pages, is heavily illustrated and has many situation charts. The author has a website, www.bosamar.com , where the book can be ordered and the history of the Battle off Samar can be read about. It is a good site. -- Al
