Re: Battle of Leyte Gulf
it could well be argued that Japan lost the battle, as at Midway, in the planning stage when they split their force into too many sections!
I watched a documentary today about this battle. They kinda made it sound like the IJN just nearly won. Ok so I have some questions.
If the IJN BB force had not retreated and kept attacking.
How long until they could have destroyed our invasion fleet.
How long would it have taken the 7th fleet warships to engage. I know these were the older BBs but would have put up quite a fight.
How long would it have taken the 3rd fleet carrier planes and warships to engage.
