The Action of 24 July 1945 was one of the final naval battles during the Pacific Theater of World War II. In an attempt to destroy as many allied ships as possible, the Imperial Japanese Navy began arming their submarine fleet with manned torpedos called kaitens. The Action of 24 July 1945 concerns the battle between a convoy of United States Navy warships off Luzon and the Japanese submarine I-53 and her kaitens. In July of 1945 the destroyer escort USS Underhill, under Lieutenant Commander Robern N. Newcomb, was assigned flagship of a convoy carrying United States Army soldiers of the 96th Infantry Division from Okinawa to the Philippines.
