Arthur Morey and Don Keith, the authors of the present publication, are the world recognized experts in the field of naval history. Most of the books dedicated to the Coral Sea Battle, are treating the Neosho attack as a footnote, while in this one a completely different angle has been taken sticking with Sims and Neosho ships, together with their crew members as they participated in the battles against Japanese armed forces.

The story told on the pages of this volume is full of heroic endurance as well as human failings. The author does not try to airbrush the actually inglorious facts. Instead, he makes his best to balance all associated elements in order to build a satisfying narrative text with the human interest and magnetic appeal. As a consequence, combined efforts of the authors have resulted in the best-selling title which has already been found to be one of the most successful volumes on naval history. The publication offers its readers a riveting portrayal of the people serving on board the Neosho naval ship and their courageous actions under the conditions of the extreme duress.

Note, however, that it is much more than just another saga dedicated to this vessel as the authors also go into a huge amount of various details related to the several aspects of the Battle of the Coral Sea, addressing how exactly these events were relating to the Neosho and people on board.
