There are any number of informative articles in the Naval War College Review, and one in particular, Asymmetric Warfare at Sea, gives a great outline of the starting positions of the US and Japan prior to WWII in addition to a detailed recount of  the Naval Battles off Guadalcanal, 1942–1943.

I was fortunate to meet with Howard on the ms Rotterdam en route to Lima, Peru, and we discussed a number of the points I bring up in my military lectures: Click Here

Thanks Howard!!!!
