Any good recommendations? Please and Thanks.
"Strong Men Armed: The United States Marines Against Japan" by Robert Leckie. Yes, the Robert Leckie portarayed in the series the Pacific.
"Red Sun Setting: The Battle of the Philippine Sea" by William T. Y'Blood
Good book for covering the battle, not so much for some of his conclusions.
Morrison's "The Two-Ocean War: A Short History of the United States Navy in the Second World War" gives a good general history of naval operations in the Pacific (and the Atlantic/Med). You have to understand the naval war to provide proper context for the ground war, in the pacific they were too interrelated. Has a good short section on the Phillipine Sea.
Not books, but some very good reading here.

I've added Hyperwar to my 'favorites' folder and I put some of the suggested books on my Amazon wishlist, thank you all for the responses.
