    World's deepest shipwreck discovered - BBC News

    If this has been posted already, please delete. The USS Samuel B Roberts was found. The world’s deepest shipwreck.

    I wish James Hornfischer was alive to see this.

    USS Samuel B Roberts: World's deepest shipwreck discovered

    What a great story. I hope the wreck stays where it is. The Battle off Samar us one of the reasons I got interested in WW2. That encounter was the epitome of heroism by the US Navy.

    Looks like a duplicate thread. I echo your thoughts about Hornfischer.

    Morison was good, Hornfischer is much better.
