    My 23 year old uncle was decapitated as his bomber went down – still shooting. Pilot survived ,swam to shore & fought . We never knew this, until pilot's son wrote a book about it; 7 yrs. or so ago . My grandma,father & aunts were passed. He was a Patriot.

    Still can’t understand how the Navy allowed the most decorated ship of WW2 (USS Enterprise) to be sold for scrap! In the end, it took a sci-television show (Star Trek) to publicly honor its service outside of the Navy. Yes, the Navy has officially had ships names Enterprise since 1799 but Gene Roddenberry was fascinated by the WW2 aircraft carrier and proud of its service. This inspired him to change the name of the Star Trek ship from Yorktown to Enterprise. Eventually NASA would name one of space shuttles the same name.

    Leyte Gulf today. What Halsey did was stupid he was the reason Samar happened Taffy 3 was wiped out. For more on that battle watch Dogfights Death of the Japanese Navy. Some good did come out of Leyte Gulf Oldendorf sank Southern Force by crossing the T and Enterprise sank Musashi and wounded the Yamamoto but Halsey going after Zukaku was a mistake. No Zekes are on that carrier it is empty it was bait. You know the rest of the story Evans engages Karata the Yamamoto sinks him. In 2019 and in 2022 we found Evans and his flagship Johnston and we found the USS Roberts and the remains of Taffy 3 may they rest in peace.

    Japanese had a stupid way of thinking unbelievable

  • @xiaobinliu1060 on May 12, 2024

    I love this battle. Really lets the American fleet shine ( with the insanely limited power and japanese yamato ).

  • @RalphTempleton-vr6xs on May 12, 2024

    Great story as far as it goes, but it kinda glossed over a few of the other destroyers' incredible valor that day. The Samuel B. Johnston, the Hoel as well, all made fantastic stands and were lost in that action

    Hey, History! QUIT DELETING THEN REUPLOADING THESE. It's so annoying!

    All change is change for the better. There is no such thing as "change for the worse." Change is the process of Life Itself, and that process could be called by the name "evolution." And evolution moves in only one direction: forward, and toward improvement.

    Shame the carrier born attack on an enemy fleet, that had happened over a year before Pearl Harbour, is not mentioned. The Japanese High command had taken notice of the use of this type of warfare from this attack, the American high command did not, until after Pearl Harbour.

  • @kennethdeanmiller7324 on May 30, 2024

    Halsey had planned on leaving behind a task force of Battleships to guard the San Bernadino straight but then never gave the order for the planned task force to detach. Which imho he was derelict of his duty to guard the landing forces. Considering he had so many ships he could have left half of them behind & both would forces would have still been overwhelming.

  • @kennethdeanmiller7324 on May 30, 2024

    But also, Captain Evans was in command of the Johnston up until he ordered everyone to abandon ship. He was the last sailor alive to leave the ship & was seen in the water after the ship sank. However, because of Kamikaze attacks later in the day survivors were not rescued for days. And it is believed that he eventually died from exposure or shark attacks. With so many men being injured sharks could smell the blood in the water. Which usually creates a frenzy of sharks in such waters. His Medal of Honor was very much deserved and it's a shame that he never got to see it or wear it.

    This under values the contribution of the pt boats and the destroyers of the 7 th fleet.

  • @edwardmyers8782 on May 31, 2024

    They also failed to mention that planes reported the reversal of the center force Halsey disregarded these reports
