Just dropping it here, as I think it might be interesting for some of you, after covering Midway in a similar fashion earlier this year decided to do a blow-by-blow reporting of the Naval Battle of Guadalcanal (November 12 - 15) on Twitter as well:

 

 

Tune in for the hashtag #Guadalcanal1942 with all time stamps fitting with the appropriate time zone.

 

I would say "Enjoy and have fun", but that is not really the point of this exercise... To be fair, after the Midway I did this mostly to get a better insight into the battle and where Midway tweet preparation helped me to really understand the pressure and mixed information Nagumo was getting, preparing this Twitter stream underlined the sheer chaos, terror and intensity of the night battles. The Midway is a slowly unrolling drama... Here you have sudden, brutal bursts of action in the pitch black darkness...
