i am very interested in MUSASHI and YAMATO in particularly the role MUSASHI played in the fight off of Samar and Leyte with the U.S.TAFFY groups protecting the U.S.beach-head on Leyte and her sinking after passing back through SAN BERNANDINO passage into the SIBUYAN SEA.I live in CEBU the PHILIPPINES
