"At War with the Wind" by David Sears

A review here. Available at major book sellers and your local library.

Although I agree with most of what Mr. Sears had to say about the events of April 1st and LST-884, I believe there might have been some research issues as to whom was killed in the initial attack based on the deck logs of that day and that all crew was accounted for.
