USS Johnston's Last Stand

Movie, Entertainment

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.
