Yamato's Final Voyage


Sinking the Supership homepage

Launch slide show Yamato's Final Voyage

On April 7, 1945, the battleship Yamato, the pride of Japan's navy, succumbed to American airpower in the Pacific. A cataclysmic series of explosions tore the massive ship in half and sent her to the seafloor with, tragically, most of her crew of about 3,000. Only a handful of photographs from Yamato's final hours—many of them taken from attacking aircraft—have survived. Click on the image at left to launch this slide show and view dramatic archival images from the sinking of Japan's supership.—Lexi Krock
