Naval Battle of Guadalcanal
U.S. Navy map of U.S. and Japanese ship locations, just prior to opening fire during battle of November 13, 1942. U.S. ship locations are fairly accurate, except that the first U.S. ships in line began to jumble formation just before opening fire. The Japanese ship locations aren't completely accurate.
Photo taken during the Naval Battle of Guadalcanal on November 14-15, 1942, showing the U.S. battleship Washington firing upon the Japanese battleship Kirishima. The low elevation of the barrels shows how the close range of the adversaries; only 8,400 yards, point blank range for the 16"/45 caliber main armament of Washington.
