W.W. II, The Bataan Death March was a tragedy of epic proportions with 76,000 American and Filipino prisoners of war forcibly transferred, on foot, by the Imperial Japanese Army to Bataan. Even as the American and Filipino troops repelled the Japanese for several months, they were forced to retreat to wait for supplies and reinforcements. But the Japanese had cut off all routes to the Philippines, preventing a rescue by U.S. Military and the troops were forced to surrender on April 4, 1942.

16 in Iowa class battleship USS Missouri in 1951 - the most famous of the four sisters (all of which survive) because the Japanese surrender was signed aboard her on 2 September 1945. They were probably the best battleships ever built.
