Ironbottom Sound: Lindsay Baly: : Books Skip to main contentAuthor: Lindsay Baly. From Booklist Dozens of battered warships lie beneath the constricted waters off Guadalcanal, justifying the macabre moniker of Iron Bottom Sound. Unseen for 50 years, this submarine battlefield received its first visitor inaquanaut Robert Ballard/5(33).

Ironbottom Sound “THE MAGNITUDE OF THE SOLOMONS CAMPAIGN HAS NEVER BEEN fully realized,” Joe Custer wrote. “Some day its detailed, barbaric history will awe the civilized world. The clock had been turned back thousands of years, back to the primitive, on Guadalcanal.” That history was quickly in the writing.

Robert Ballard, the same person who found the Bismarck and Titanic has done it again. This time, Ballard visits perhaps the greatest concentration of sunken ships in the world-the passage of water off Guadalcanal known as Ironbottom Sound/5(4).

So many ships have been sunk that one sea lane has been nicknamed Ironbottom Sound. But Vice Admiral William “Bull” Halsey has been charged with winning the naval battle, and to do so, he’s assembled a task force and hand-picked his captains.

Location Iron Bottom Sound was American nickname for the body of water in the Solomon Islands between Guadalcanal in Guadalcanal Province to the south and Florida Island Group (Florida Islands) to the north and Savo Island to the west in Central average, the depth of Iron Bottom Sound is roughly 1, feet / meters.

Here, opposing ships faced off with such ferocity that the waters around the Solomon Islands became known as Ironbottom Sound. It is fitting that a book about throwback battles should be written by something of a throwback author.

Savo Sound wasn't always peaceful. This body of water also goes by another name: Ironbottom Sound, a reminder of the ships and planes strewn across the seafloor during the fierce struggle for nearby Guadalcanal during World War II.

The iron started piling up in the predawn hours of Sunday, August 9, Six divers broke out of a clear-blue sky and dropped silently into the depths of Iron Bottom Sound.

Unseen and unheard, they descended straight for the USS Aaron Ward some feet below. As the wreck came into view, they were greeted by two five-inch gun turrets--each barrel still elevated and pointed skyward, frozen in their final firing position from a time of deadly conflict some sixty.

The stretch of water between Guadalcanal, Savo Island, and Florida Island of the Solomon Islands was called the "Sealark Sound" once WWII started named the Savo Sounds and became the location of the heaviest naval fighting in the Pacific.

Many planes and ships from both sides meet there watery graves in that location, I've even read accounts of 70 ships sinking in that area I've.
