Montgomery Diary – March 1, 1945
March 1 – Fueled ship. Received war correspondent from one ship and transferred him to another. Today we hit Okinawa Jima in the Ryukyu shoto. Damage to the enemy: Sank two Jap destroyers and damaged 1, another damaged two 20,000 ton merchant ships. Destroyed a number of Jap aircraft and damaged air fields and also damaged Jap Naval Base. Will get more report tomorrow. Some ships were ordered to bombard tonight, so yet we don’t know which ones will have the job.
