-->-- Officer of the cruiser USS San Francisco ''San Francisco'' receiving cheers from sailors watching his ship put in for repairs with [[CoveredInScars 26 15-inch shell holes]] from the [[UsefulNotes/WorldWarII "Cruiser Night Surface Action" on the first night of the Naval Battle of Guadalcanal.]]
Guadalcanal]], in which American ships engaged a superior Japanese force at close range in near-total darkness, in a confused and brutal contest often described as "a knife fight in a phone booth." During the battle, ''San Francisco'' spent several minutes [[DavidVersusGoliath dueling the battleship]] HIMS ''Hiei'' at point-blank range, nearly colliding as the two ships pounded eachother. The following morning, the US fleet had held the line and ''San Francisco'' was still (barely) floating and underway, while the Japanese were scattered and ''Hiei'' was a drifting inferno to be finished off by American dive bombers from the island.
