    She took the battle to an unexpected Japanese fleet.

    Fired all of her torpedoes, damaging many Japanese ships.

    She fought until her last engine gave out.

    She was dead in the water.

    Finally the Japanese ships circled her, firing round after round until she finally sank.

    Over 100 survived, yet never to be heard from.
