By April of 1945, the Allied push across the Pacific had summarily turned the tide of the war against Imperial Japan. With her surface fleet and naval air forces virtually decimated through attrition from previous campaigns and battles, the Imperial Japanese Navy (IJN) attempted one final, desperate push against the Allies at Okinawa with the very symbol of the navy and Japan itself, the Yamato battleship. Unfortunately, they were up against the massive Allied naval forces approaching Okinawa.Operation Ten-Go: The End of the Battleship Yamato — Fair Winds & Following Seas
EASTER Sunday, April 4, 2021@09:59-Well as I am not the BIG NAVY WARSHIPS writer and also W.W.II Naval Researcher, still being interested in this kind of Naval Warfare of W.W.II/1939-1945; and also being that it is still part of both THE BATTLE FOR THE PACIFIC/1941-1945, and THE BATTLE OF THE ATLANTIC/1939-1945, I still RESEARCH and WRITE concerning it…ONCE IN A BLUE MOON!!!
Note: Both NAVAL WARFARE in the PACIFIC, and the ATLANTIC, just mentioned above, and ACTUALLY, ALL of the ON THE HIGH SEAS NAVAL CAMPAIGNS, had CAPITAL BATTLESHIPS, and other LARGE WARSHIPS, that were HEAVY INTO THE NAVAL WARFARE ACTION!!! OBVIOUSLY, more than precisely, NO MATTER HOW BIG THE WARSHIP, ALLIED OR AXIS; there is an EXCELLENT CHANCE of BEING ATTACKED and SUNK!!! THIS EXCELLENT BLOG, DESCRIBES and RELATES to the LARGEST WARSHIP, THE I.J.N., BATTLESHIP-YAMATO, IN THE WORLD, WITH HER 20 INCH MAIN ARMAMENT GUNS, AND ALL OTHER WEAPONRY AND HIGH TECHNICAL RADAR, COMMUNICATIONS, etc., YAMATO WAS STILL OPEN TO ATTACK AND BEING SUNK…BY ALLIED NAVAL and AIR FORCES!!!
BEING A NAVAL BUFF, and ENJOYING THE RESEARCH, WRITING, STUDYING, and EVERYTHING ELSE THAT GOES WITH W.W.II NAVY; WOULD IT NOT…HAVE BEEN AN ENJOYMENT, TO HAVE BEEN PRESENT, IN THE U.S.N., AT THIS SINKING OF I.J.N., YAMATO, and THEN SOME? I WILL SAY IT WOULD HAVE BEEN!!!
WELL, ENJOY, AND RESEARCH IS THE REWARD; LET US KEEP W.W.II NAVY/1939-1945 HISTORY, ALIVE!!!
