Isoroku Yamamoto

Date of Birth:





Isoroku Yamamoto was born on April 4, 1884, in Nagoka, Japan, the last of seven children. His first name "Esoroku" translates to "56", which was his father's age at birth. At age 16, Yamamoto entered the Imperial Japan Naval Academy in Etajima. He graduated in 1904 and placed seventh in his class, assigned to the port Nisshin. He lives near Nagaoka, entered Imperial Naval School at the age of 16 and was a sailor during the Tshushima War on May 27, 1905, during the Russo-Japanese war, when he lost two fingers on the left. He was adopted by the Yamamoto family and took their name. He was promoted to commander and was sent to the Tokyo military headquarters and shortly thereafter married. Throughout his career, Yamamoto was opposed to many Japanese military invasions, such as the invasion of Manchuria in 1931 and the subsequent world war with China. In addition, he was enthusiastic in his opposition to any war with the United States and officially apologized for the 1937 sinking of the USS Panay. Throughout the fall of 1942, he fought battles with the cargo company (Eastern Solomons & Santa Cruz) and more land involvement to support Guadalcanal forces. After the fall of Guadalcanal in February 1943, Yamamoto decided to make a pilgrimage to the South Pacific to boost morale. Using radio communications, American forces were able to split the command line of his commander. On the morning of April 18, 1943, American P-38 Lightning aircraft flew from the 339 Fighter squadron and landed the Yamamoto aircraft and its locations near Bougainville. In the ensuing struggle, Jamamoto's plane crashed to the ground, killing all on board. These killings are usually attributed to 1st LieutenantRex T. Barber. Yamamoto succeeded to the Combined Fleet commander of Admiral mineichi Koga.
