Photo: Bombed Into Ruin by America's Flyers. Japanese cruiser, of the Mogami class, after she had been bombed by American naval planes in the Battle of Midway island during the first week in June. (See pages 54 and 61.) Superstructures have been reduced to scrap-iron and the whole deck is a mass of flame and smoke. Top, a terrifying impression of the shattered monster, her guns knocked out, with one dipping towards the sea, a cauldron of fire amidships, and sailors huddled at stern and bows. Photos, Keystone.
