    Victory Through Perseverance: The Battle of Guadalcanal

    The Naval Battle of Guadalcanal – sometimes referred to as the Third and Fourth Battles of Savo Island, the Battle of the Solomons, The Battle of Friday the 13th, The Night of the Big Guns, or in Japanese sources, the Third Battle of the Solomon Sea – took place from November 12-15, 1942, and was the decisive engagement in a series of naval battles between Allied (primarily American) and Imperial Japanese forces during the months-long...
