USS Johnston’s Last Stand

USS Johnston take the Battle to the vastly Superior Japanese Force

On board the Destroyer USS Johnston Commander Ernest Edwin Evans is proceeding with his usual routine when a radio transmission from a patrolling plane warns of an incoming enemy fleet. The Japanese Center Force has slipped through undetected and is barreling down upon them.

The pilot reports “I can see pagoda masts. I see the biggest meatball flag on the biggest battleship I ever saw!”

The American fleet is completely outclassed. With their 7 destroyers and 6 carriers the Yamato alone weighs more than the entirety of Taffy 3 combined.
It’s an incredible story of bravery against overwhelming odds where the Evans and the crew of the USS Johnston take the battle to the vastly superior Japanese force.
