Timeline - The 1940s

The world was at war as the decade began, all within the confines of a great depression that was affecting the lives of all Americans, but when Pearl Harbor was attacked, the United States could no longer be on the sidelines. Through the courage and dedication of the soldiers who fought in the European or South Pacfic theaters, they spent much of this decade in a battle for a way of life that the country and western powers had spent two centuries building. By the end of the decade, that war would be won and the build back on the front burner.

1942 Detail

November 8, 1942 - North Africa is invaded by the United States and Great Britain.

While the focus on the history of United States involvement in World War II seems to point to both the invasion of Europe and the Pacific Theatre against Japan, the first mass invasion of territory would first come in the African theatre. Operation Torch in North Africa would begin in November of 1842, six months prior to the Allied invasion into Sicily and more than one year before the Normandy invasion into France.

As British and American commanders debated which strategy to take (British favored a French North Africa campaign, thus opening up a second front in Africa, to improve control of the Mediterranean Sea the United States a direct attack into France), plans were taking shape. When President Roosevelt decided to back Winston Churchill in his approach, Operation Torch was put into action. Allied forces from Great Britain and the United States would battle against forces of the Vichy French (some Vichy French would support the Allies) in Algiers, Tunisia, and Morocco, attacking Axis forces in a pincer movement. It was beneficial to Allied forces in this operation, which were commanded by General Dwight D. Eisenhower, that Germany's attention was on other parts of the war, and despite acknowleding a build up of ships off the coast of Gibraltar, did not think that an invasion was upcoming. This was sufficiently acknowledged by the Axis Foreign Minister of Italy, Galeazzo Ciano, on November 8, when he told of the disarray in the Axis camp, "At five-thirty in the morning [German foreign minister Ulrich Jaochim] von Ribbentrop telephoned to inform me of American landings in Algerian and Moroccan ports. He was rather nervous, and wanted to know what we intended to do. I must confess that, having been caught unawares, I was too sleepy to give a very satisfactory answer."

There would be three planned attacks: Western Task Force - General Patton with 100 ships and 35,000 troops against Casablanca. Central Task Force - Major General Fredenhall with 18,500 troops against Oran. Eastern Task Force - Lt. General Anderson with 20,000 troops against Algiers.

Timeline of Operation Torch

November 8, 1942 - Western Task Force lands before daybreak.
Encounter French resistence loyal to Germany. Jewish French Resistence fighters stage coup in Algiers for Allies, leading to limited resistence on the Eastern Task Force front and surrender at 6 pm.
November 9, 1842 - Central Task Force gains surrender of Oran after heavy fire from British warships.
November 10, 1942 - Casablanca surrenders to Patton's army.

Who Were the Vichy French?

The Vichy French was the pro-Axis (German) official government of France from 1940-1944. They were headquartered in Vichy, France, and from 1940-1942, controlled the southern region of France and the North African territories of Algiers, Tunisia, and Morocco. At that time, Germany controlled northern France, and after the Allied invasion of North Africa on November 8, 1942, all of it. The Vichy French government was still in power, but only as a puppet of Germany. During the first two years of the Vichy French regime, two million French soldiers were put into servitude, hostages doing forced labor for Hitler, to ensure Vichy French cooperation. Charles de Gaulle's Free France government in exile, which had been set up in London in 1940, would seize control of their colonies one by one. They would succeed the Vichy French government in June of 1944 after the Allied invasion of France.


USS Enterprise CV-6 The Most Decorated Ship of the Second World War

Carrier-based air group naming conventions changed over the course of the war, reflecting changes in Navy command structure and security policies. Before World War II, air groups were named after the carrier on which they were stationed hence, there was a Lexington Air Group, a Saratoga Air Group, an Enterprise Air Group, and so on. Squadrons in each air group were numbered with the hull number of the ship. For example, the Enterprise Air Group had four squadrons: VF-6 (fighters), VB-6 (bombers), VT-6 (torpedo bombers), and VS-6 (scout-bombers).

Particularly during the hectic first year of the war, squadrons were frequently deployed wherever they were most needed, be it another carrier or an airfield, such as Guadalcanal's Henderson Field. Squadrons from Saratoga CV-3 and Yorktown CV-5 were assigned to Enterprise for short periods. Air Group 10's Fighting Ten was formed around airmen of Lexington CV-2 Air Group's VF-2 after that great ship was sunk at Coral Sea (7-8 May 1942). After the Battle of the Eastern Solomons, four planes from Bombing Six were transferred to Wasp CV-7, while the remainder of Bombing Six and Scouting Five (formerly of Yorktown!) were stationed at Guadalcanal, as "Flight 300". As Jim Geyton (ARM 1/c) who served in Enterprise from December 1941 to August 1944, notes:

During the Guadalcanal campaign, most squadrons began receiving mail addressed to their own Fleet Post Office (FPO) address, and not in care of the ship on which they served. As this policy began to take effect, squadron designations changed from (for example) Enterprise Air Group to Air Group Six.

Later, for security reasons, squadron numbers were assigned at random, instead of by ship hull number. For example, the last three air groups to fly from Enterprise were Air Group Ten, Air Group Twenty, and Night Air Group Ninety. Enemy intelligence could no longer deduce a carrier's deployment from the squadrons it embarked.

Terrifying: How the Battleship USS NEW JERSEY Fought the Vietnam-W4r

The USS NEW JERSEY caused a lot of damage, firing more shells than during its service in WW2. Yet, even the addition of battleships failed to win Washington the w4r.

As the w4r in Vietnam reached its crescendo, the U.S. Navy prepared to recommission one of the most powerful ships ever to serve in the fleet. USS New Jersey, an Iowa-class battleship, was reactivated to provide naval gunfire support for American and allied forces fighting in South Vietnam. The battlewagon fired nearly twenty thousand shells during its tour of duty, bombarding enemy forces the way only a battleship can.

The USS New Jersey was the second Iowa-class battleship ever built, and the third from last U.S. Navy battleship ever built. New Jersey was part of the Navy’s prewar rearmament program, as the United States began to build up its forces in response to w4r in both Europe and the Pacific. Construction began at the Philadelphia Naval Yard on September 16, 1940, and the ship was launched exactly one year after Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1942. She was finally commissioned into the U.S. Navy on May 23, 1943.

New Jersey was built to the same specifications as her three sister ships: Iowa, Missouri, and Wisconsin. (Two additional ships, Illinois and Kentucky, were ordered but never completed.) Each battleship was 860 feet long, weighed 57,350 tons fully loaded with ammunition and fuel, and were powered by four General Electric steam turbines, giving them a top speed of 33 knots. The battleships were armed with nine sixteen-inch guns, twenty five-inch dual purpose guns, eighty 40-millimeter anti-aircraft guns, and forty nine 20-millimeter anti-aircraft guns.

The Ohio-class battleships were originally designed to duke it out with other battleships, including such Axis ships as the German Bismarck and the Japanese super-battleships Yamato and Musashi. The changing nature of warfare, however, relegated the battleships to providing naval gunfire support for Army and Marine landings across the Pacific and anti-air warfare escort for aircraft carriers. All four briefly saw action in the Korean W4r, with Iowa, New Jersey, and Wisconsin all reactivated to provide heavy gunfire support from the sea. The Korean-W4r ended in 1953 and New Jersey was again decommissioned in 1957.

USS San Francisco returns to U. S. after heroic battle - December 1942

USS San Francisco, a 9950-ton New Orleans class heavy cruiser, was built at Mare Island, California. She was commissioned in February 1934 and made a shakedown cruise from Hawaii to Canada to Panama before joining the U.S. Fleet in early 1935. For the next four years, she operated in the eastern Pacific and in early 1939 went to the Caribbean to participate in Fleet Problem XX. After the completion of that exercise, she led Cruiser Division Seven on a long voyage around South America, returning to the U.S. east coast via the Panama Canal. With the outbreak of the European war in September 1939, San Francisco made Neutrality Patrols in the Western Atlantic and Caribbean.

Returning to the Pacific in early 1940, San Francisco began operations out of Pearl Harbor, where she was undergoing overhaul on 7 December 1941, when Japan attacked the Pacific Fleet there. Though their ship was largely dismantled, the cruiser's crew actively participated in anti-aircraft gunfire against enemy aircraft. San Francisco was back at sea in mid-month, when she joined in the abortive expedition to relieve the American outpost on Wake Island. During the first months of 1942, she took part in the reinforcement of Allied positions in the southern Pacific, an attempted carrier raid on Rabaul and a successful raid on Japanese forces off northern New Guinea. In the August 1942 invasion of Guadalcanal and Tulagi, San Francisco operated with the U.S. aircraft carriers that supported the landings. She remained active in the Guadalcanal Campaign for three months, serving as task force flagship in the Battle of Cape Esperance on 11-12 October and in the first parts of the Naval Battle of Guadalcanal on 12-13 November 1942. During the latter action she was severely damaged by a crashing Japanese plane and by gunfire.

Following extensive repairs San Francisco escorted a convoy to the south Pacific, then went to the Aleutians, where she took part in the recovery of Attu and Kiska in mid-1943. In October, she participated in a raid on Japanese-held Wake Island and during the next two months was part of the forces that captured the Gilbert Islands and raided the Marshalls. She stayed busy in 1944, participating in the January-February Marshall Islands invasion, raids on Japanese central and south Pacific bases in February-April, and the vast Marianas campaign in June and July. Late in the year and early in 1945, following a west coast overhaul, she escorted the carrier task forces that raided throughout the western Pacific as U.S. amphibious operations seized the northern Philippines and Iwo Jima. From late March 1945 into June she participated in the Ryukyus campaign.

After the fighting ended in mid-August, San Francisco operated off China and Korea. She arrived back in the U.S. in December 1945 and was decommissioned at the Philadelphia Navy Yard in February 1946. Following more than a decade in the Reserve Fleet, USS San Francisco was sold for scrapping in September 1959.

Battleship USS Iowa launched - 27 August 1942

USS Iowa, lead ship of a class of 45,000-ton battleships, was built at the New York Navy Yard, Brooklyn, New York. Commissioned in February 1943, she spent her initial service in the Atlantic and carried President Franklin D. Roosevelt to and from Casablanca, Morocco, in November 1943. Early in January 1944, Iowa steamed to the Pacific, where she took part in the Marshalls Campaign later in that month and in February. From then until the end of 1944, she was actively involved in raids against Japanese facilities and campaigns to capture the Marianas, the Palaus and Leyte, including participation in the Battles of the Philippine Sea and Leyte Gulf.

After overhaul in early 1945, Iowa returned to the western Pacific for the Okinawa campaign and the final operations against Japan. She was present in Tokyo Bay during the formal surrender of Japan on 2 September 1945. She returned to the United States later in that month and operated with the Pacific Fleet until she was decommissioned in March 1949.

The Korean War brought Iowa back into active service. She was recommissioned in August 1951 and made a combat deployment to Korean waters in April-October 1952, during which time she served as Seventh Fleet flagship. Upon return to the U.S., she was transferred to the Atlantic Fleet. Over the next several years, Iowa made several European cruises and was present for the International Naval Review in Hampton Roads, Virginia, in June 1957. She was decommissioned in February 1958.

After two and a half decades in mothballs, Iowa was modernized under the 1980s defense buildup and recommissioned in April 1984. She went to European waters in 1985, 1986 and 1987-88, with the latter cruise continuing into the Indian Ocean and Arabian Sea. A fire in her second sixteen-inch gun turret killed 47 crewmen on 19 April 1989, but Iowa was still able to deploy to Europe and the Mediterranean Sea in mid-year. Turret two remained unrepaired when she decommissioned for the last time in October 1990. USS Iowa is presently part of the Reserve Fleet.

Tug Jupiter visits the Battleship New Jersey after 75 years

The Battleship New Jersey was launched on December 7, 1942 - the one year anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor. When the New Jersey was launched, the first tug to catch a line from the Battleship was Tug Jupiter.

Tug Jupiter was built in 1902, so she had already seen more than four decades of service when she participated in the launch of New Jersey.

On December 7, 2017, the now 115-year-old Tug Jupiter revisited the New Jersey to help celebrate the 75th anniversary of the Battleship's launch.

The USS New Jersey (BB-62) was launched on December 7, 1942. This is a slideshow collection of photos taken at the Battleship New Jersey Museum & Memorial in Camden, New Jersey, across from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

The History of the Enterprise

Ships Named Enterprise: For More Than 240 Years, They’ve Boldly Served America’s Navy.
During the Dec. 1, 2012 inactivation ceremony of CVN-65, the eighth U.S. Navy ship to bear the name Enterprise, then-Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus announced the legacy of “Big E” would continue, officially naming the third Gerald R. Ford-class carrier, CVN-80, USS Enterprise. As the Navy formally decommissioned its immediate predecessor Feb. 3, 2017, it’s appropriate to look back at each of the mighty ships that have born the name whose greatness was earned by the integrity, accountability, initiative and toughness of the Sailors who have served in them.
As we say fair winds to CVN-65, and welcome in the new era of CVN-80, the ninth ship to carry the name Enterprise, let’s take a look back at the making of the legacy. Check out my Awesome new Sci Fi Store!! Interested in helping this Channel grow? go here:

Conclusion: [30:19]

The Bombing of Darwin was a battle in the Pacific war during World War II. It occurred on Darwin, Northern of Australia, on 19 February 1942. Allied aircraft replacements could reach Southeast Asia only by ship or by an air bridge in which Darwin was a vital link. The Japanese therefore acted to deny the Allies the use of Darwin by launching a massive carrier raid against the port on 19 February 1942. Some 190 aircraft from four of Nagumo's carriers and another 54 land-based bombers based in the Netherlands East Indies participated in the Raid.

In this video, you will find an animated map of the details of invasion operation by the Japanese empire and The Allied defence. The Bombing of Darwin is often less mentioned in the history book and one of the forgotten battles in Pacific Theather.

The History of the USS Hornet

USS Hornet (CV/CVA/CVS-12) is an Essex-class aircraft carrier built for the United States Navy during World War II. She was originally named USS Kearsarge, but was renamed in honor of the prior USS Hornet (CV-8), which was lost in October 1942, becoming the eighth ship to bear the name in the Navy. Completed in 1943, the ship participated in the Pacific War. Hornet then took part in Operation Magic Carpet, returning troops to the U.S. She served in the Vietnam War and also played a part in the Apollo program, recovering the Apollo 11 and Apollo 12 astronauts as they returned from the Moon.

Hornet was decommissioned in 1970. She was eventually designated as both a National Historic Landmark and a California Historical Landmark, and she opened to the public as the USS Hornet Museum in Alameda, California in 1998.

Frank Emond, Pearl Harbor Survivor

Born in Rhode Island, Frank Emond joined the U.S. Navy in 1938 in search of new opportunities. In December 1941, Frank was a french horn player in the U.S. Navy band aboard the battleship USS Pennsylvania. He was there on December 7, 1941, witnessing the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. As the band played morning colors, Frank saw the first bomb drop and explode at a hangar on Ford Island. During and in the aftermath of the attack, he served as a stretcher bearer, carrying casualties to safety to allow for crews to fight the fires. Frank would stay in the Navy for 30 years, and he can still see the images from that morning, which have remained with him.

SUMMARY
=======
A battleship is a large armored warship with a main battery consisting of large caliber guns. During the late 19th and early 20th centuries the battleship was the most powerful type of warship, and a fleet of battleships was considered vital for any nation that desired to maintain command of the sea.
The term battleship came into formal use in the late 1880s to describe a type of ironclad warship, now referred to by historians as pre-dreadnought battleships. In 1906, the commissioning of HMS Dreadnought into the United Kingdom's Royal Navy heralded a revolution in battleship design. Subsequent battleship designs, influenced by HMS Dreadnought, were referred to as dreadnoughts, though the term eventually became obsolete as they became the only type of battleship in common use.
Battleships were a symbol of naval dominance and national might, and for decades the battleship was a major factor in both diplomacy and military strategy. A global arms race in battleship construction began in Europe in the 1890s and culminated at the decisive Battle of Tsushima in 1905, the outcome of which significantly influenced the design of HMS Dreadnought. The launch of Dreadnought in 1906 commenced a new naval arms race. Three major fleet actions between steel battleships took place: the long range gunnery duel at the Battle of the Yellow Sea in 1904, the decisive Battle of Tsushima in 1905, both, during the Russo-Japanese War, and the inconclusive Battle of Jutland (1916) during the First World War. Jutland was the largest naval battle and the only full-scale clash of dreadnoughts of the war, it was the last major battle in naval history fought primarily by battleships.The Naval Treaties of the 1920s and 1930s limited the number of battleships, though technical innovation in battleship design continued. Both the Allied and Axis powers built battleships during World War II, though the increasing importance of the aircraft carrier meant that the battleship played a less important role than had been expected.
The value of the battleship has been questioned, even during their heyday. There were few of the decisive fleet battles that battleship proponents expected, and used to justify the vast resources spent on building battlefleets. Even in spite of their huge firepower and protection, battleships were increasingly vulnerable to much smaller and relatively inexpensive weapons: initially the torpedo and the naval mine, and later aircraft and the guided missile. The growing range of naval engagements led to the aircraft carrier replacing the battleship as the leading capital ship during World War II, with the last battleship to be launched being HMS Vanguard in 1944. Four battleships were retained by the United States Navy until the end of the Cold War for fire support purposes and were last used in combat during the Gulf War in 1991. The last battleships were stricken from the U.S. Naval Vessel Register in the 2000s.
