Description: 26 October 1942 from the deck of the USS San Juan
USS Juneau - The Battle of Santa Cruz - October 26, 1942
Official U.S. Navy Photograph
THE JUNEAU FIGHTS BACK - After batteries blazing, the USS JUNEAU demonstrates her fighting qualities during a Japanese air attack in the Battle of Santa Cruz Islands, October 26, 1942. Less than a month later, in the Battle of Guadalcanal, November 13-15, the JUNEAU was sunk by enemy action. The picture indicates that a bomb dropped by the plane heading for cloud protection at right fell off the port side of the JUNEAU, which is concentrating fire on the bomber just starting to dive at left.
A special thanks to Keith & Janie Hodges for sending in this photo.
