Enright also provides superb background on the Shinano, and this book tells this small obscure tale in a fashion that is engaging and holds a reader’s attention.

American intelligence had considered the Shinano to possibly be a cruiser (deriving the name from the Shinano River, rather than the ancient prefecture the ship was actually named for). This minor controversy from six decades ago shows just how inexact a science intelligence is – it is arguably a craft or an art as much as it is science.
