Aah. Lovely boat. The welterweight ship with a middleweight's jab. James Hornfischer gave a rather poetic introduction of USS Atlanta.The Atlanta Class had 8 gun turrets, 16 x 5 inch.
Atlanta herself entered service a few days after Pearl Harbor, so would just miss out on the OP criteria. Again, this class saw heavy fighting at the Solomons.
