Interrogation Nav 109, Commander Tadashi Yamamoto

8 Dec 1945

ww2dbaseYAMAMOTO, Tadashi, Commander, I.J.N.

YAMAMOTO served 14 years in the regular Navy and participated in practically every destroyer action in the SOLOMON Area in 1942-43. He was finally wounded in December 1943 and was hospitalized in JAPAN until March 1945.

YAMAMOTO appeared very intelligent and was most cooperative during the interrogation. Although he was able to answer most of the questions from memory he referred to official documents for tables of organizations and damage incurred by ships. His statements and tables have subsequently been checked by the Japanese Naval Historical Research Department and found to be correct.
