 Additional Information
Last Known Activity

USS Savannah (CL-42) was a light cruiser of the Brooklyn class that served in World War II in the Atlantic and Mediterranean theatres of operation.
 

The Savannah conducted Neutrality Patrols (1941) and wartime patrols in the Atlantic and Caribbean (1942), and supported the invasion of French North Africa in Operation Torch (November 1942). She sought German-supporting blockade runners off the east coast of South America (1943), and supported the Allied landings on Sicily and at Salerno (1943). Off Salerno on 11 September 1943, a German radio-controlled Fritz X glide-bomb caused extensive casualties aboard and serious damage to the Savannah, requiring emergency repairs in Malta and permanent repairs at the Philadelphia Naval Shipyard. 


Arthur was killed in action during the above attack.
