Hmm. The Crowning Moment Of Awesome entry for WWII seems to have vanished, the Samar listing mentions it still. :p

Too bad, the battle was a highlight for great tactics, suicidal craziness, and big damned heroes, and a lowlight for Japan, their main fleet was pushed back by a little group of destroyers, destroyer escorts, and escort carriers. Japan had multiple battleships, INCLUDING YAMATO, and several cruisers.

And they got pushed back by dinky little ships. ^_^

NINE battleship vs battleship engagements in WW2? I only count 5:

Two came during the pursuit of the Bismarck, then you have 2nd Guadalcanal, North Cape, and Surigao Strait. What are the other 4?
