Action in Kula Gulf, 6 March 1943
USS Denver (CL-58) SG radarscope image, showing the situation at time 0100 ½, just before opening fire.
Denver is the bright spot in the center of the scope, with other U.S. ships ahead, steaming SSW. The large white patch at left is Kolombangara and that at right is New Georgia. The large spot just off the Kolombangara shore is the Japanese destroyers Minegumo and Murasame, both of which were sunk in this action.
