"Ten-Go" Operation, April 1945

Japanese battleship Yamato maneuvers while under attack by U.S. Navy carrier planes north of Okinawa, 7 April 1945. The original photo caption reads: "The 72,000-ton Japanese battleship Yamato, pride of the Imperial Fleet, maneuvers evasively at a brisk 15 to 20 knots prior to attack. One fire can be observed amidships from previous attacks, but at this point no list has developed." Photographed from a USS Yorktown (CV-10) plane.

Collection of Fleet Admiral Chester W. Nimitz, USN.
