February 9, 1942: Guadalcanal and the SS Normandie


FEBRUARY 9, 1942:

The World War II battle of Guadalcanal ended with an Allied victory over Japanese forces.

This same day, The SS Normandie, a former French ocean liner being refitted for the U.S. Navy at a New York pier, caught fire.  It capsized early the next morning.
