Dogfights Leyte Gulf 2 of 5

This is an excellent summary from the book "the last stand of the tin can sailors" by hornfischer - who is interviewed in the film. The Battle of Leyte Gulf was one battle our local Veteran, Frank Mooney, was in. There were three parts of this battle- of which this talks mainly of the middle part. Mooney's ship, USS Lake DE-301 was up North with Halsey (I think).
