In the dark days of 1942, the battle for the Solomon Islands was very much in doubt. When carrier dive bomber Robert D. Hoot Gibson sighted the Japanese fleet heading for Hell's Island, he attacked the vanguard ships, sinking the heavy cruiser Kinugasa and two loaded Japanese troop transports in a battle royal that earned him the Navy Cross. He was also credited with the sinking of an I-Class submarine and shooting down two Zeroes, after going toe-to-toe with Japan's premier ace pilot, and he alone accounted for the deaths of thousands of Japanese soldiers and sailors.
