Follow up story for the Battle of Savo Island

Another shout out to Greg Cox and his Pacific Paratrooper blog for giving a shout out to another blogger I follow Pierre Lagacé, really important because it brings to light how histories written close to an event can miss significant details or actually spread false information because they don’t look for all the evidence or make assumptions, sometimes for national or political interests, especially if they were commissioned specifically to write a military or Naval history. Both of these men’s blogs should be required reading for those interested in WWII history.
