The timeline of the Japanese Battleship Yamato 大和戦艦

By using timeline technologies, we can represent visually, and highlight more effectively, the historical events that occurred on a particular warship. The system allows us to integrate not only text with the main narrations of the facts, but also pictures and possibly sounds that can help to immerse the reader deeply in the history.

Below you can find the entire Timeline of the Japanese Battleship Yamato. We plan to continue adding new ships timeline in the near future.
We hope that you can enjoy reading it and have a pleasant feeling understanding the historical conditions that led to its construction as well as its final fate.

As the Pacific War approached a crescendo, the clashes between swarming US Navy carrier aircraft, and the gigantic Imperial Japanese Navy (IJN) Yamato-class battleships became symbolic of the fortunes of the two nations. They also served as a metaphor for the profound changes in naval technology and doctrine that the war had brought about. The two opposing forces were the most powerful of their kind – the Japanese Yamato and Musashi were the biggest most heavily armored and armed battleships ever built, while US carrier aviation had evolved into a well-oiled, war-winning machine. With detailed analysis of the technical features of the opposing war machines and a gripping account of the fighting itself, this vividly illustrated work presents views from the cockpits of US Navy Divebombers, and down the sights of IJN anti-aircraft guns, during two of the most dramatic naval engagements ever fought. After proving at Pearl Harbor that even the mightiest battleships were vulnerable to air attack, the Japanese would be forced to re-learn the lesson as the American Helldiver and Avenger bomber crews battered and eventually sunk the last remaining jewels of the Imperial Japanese Navy. Never again would a surface fleet be the dominant power at sea.

Timeline of the Battleship Yamato (TROM)

A young ensign on the bridge of the fabled battleship Yamato during her final battle, recounts his experience.

This is a a 44-page saddle-stitch paperback with color interior, 17 full-page photographs, and two beautiful profile drawings of the Japanese Navy’s YAMATO, the biggest battleship ever constructed. What makes this book unique is that it answers the question in the subtitle–why YAMATO matters today–with an examination of the lessons that YAMATO holds for modern navies. A must for anyone interested in YAMATO, naval affairs, or battleships.
