by Edwin P. Hoyt (Author), Thomas H Moorer (Introduction). But it was at the Battle of the Leyte Gulf that Gambier Bay went glory-bound. On 25 October, 1944, off San Bernardino Strait, while supporting the landings at Leyte as part of Seventh Fleet's Taffy 3, that her crew confronted the whole IJN's Main Body, with 2 battleships, cruisers and their escorts. Repeatedly hit by the enemy shells, GB went down, along with DDs Johnston and Hoel and DE Samuel B. Roberts. I have not read the book as of yet, since I just received it before the holidays. I have always wanted to read it, since my father was mentioned in the book. It tells the stories of the different men who served on this particular ship.
