Battle 360 – Bloody Santa Cruz
The Solomon Islands campaign continues. The damaged Enterprise is still outnumbered, but at least it received an upgrade in its AA capability. But will it be enough as the Japanese send a massive strike force to retake Guadalcanal?
Part two of the deadly saga of the Solomons plays out at the Santa Cruz Islands, the Enterprise loses sister ship USS Hornet and suffers dozens of casualties with bombings to the deck. When the smoke clears, the Enterprise is the only American carrier left in the Pacific.
