Battle of Empress Augusta bay by U-Joe Battle of Empress Augusta bay by U-Joe
2 November 1943 Japanese detachment tried to stop the american invasion of Bougainville, but failed.
Picture I drew long time ago represent vice admiral Omori's detachment while it headed to Bougainville: u-joe.deviantart.com/#/art/Vic...
Here's the participated Japanese ships' names: cs406528.userapi.com/v40652887...

This picture represents the defeat of rear admiral Ijuin's left coloumn. The ship in the center is Shigure destroyer, commanded buy captain Tameichi Hara (this man wrote the book 'Japanese destroyer captain' after the war; interesting book, I daresay). Burning ship behind her is light cruiser Sendai, Ijuin's flagship. Americans concentrated their artillery fire on this ship, and this fire was deadly because of using artillery radar. Sendai sunk, but admiral and some crewmen were rescued. Ship on the left is Samidare, Shigure's sistership.

That's only one of the historical view of that fateful night. Aside from Sendai, I think there were several Imperial Warships had been sunk during that night battle... most of them were Destroyers.

If I remember well, only light cruiser Sendai and destroyer Hatsukaze were sunk. Others were damaged.

Well, it's because foreign languages are complicated things, and I'm afraid of using them wrong. ^^'
