Yamamoto expressed his disappointment in Mikawa’s oversight, but did not relieve him and he served well for the remainder of the campaign. Imperial General Headquarters originally deemed the American landings to be nothing more than a “reconnaissance in force,” but eventually reason took hold and the IJN assessed that a division of Marines was present on Guadalcanal. However, soon after, the estimate of the extent of the American forces was revised downward and a fatal pattern of piecemeal commitment by the Japanese was begun.
Yamamoto organized a large convoy of 11 merchant ships to deliver reinforcements escorted by Rear Admiral Tanaka Raizo’s destroyer flotilla. Because the American airfield on Guadalcanal had not been neutralized, the convoy came under air attack on November 14 in the waters northwest of Guadalcanal. Soon, seven of the 11 transports were either sunk or forced to turn back. Yamamoto ordered Tanaka to take the last four transports and beach them on the island. This view shows the transport Kinugawa Maru, beached on Guadalcanal on the morning of November 15, under attack by American Dauntless dive-bombers.

The MO operation was a major offensive for the IJN and brought about the largest naval battle of the Pacific War to date. It featured a force of 60 ships under Vice Admiral Inoue Shigeyoshi, which included two large carriers (Shokaku and Zuikaku), one light carrier (Shoho), six heavy cruisers, three light cruisers, and 15 destroyers.
