PENSACOLA departed Noumea 2 November 1942 to guard transports landing Marine reinforcements, and supplies, at Aola Bay, Guadalcanal. She helped guard ENTERPRISE during the Naval Battle of Guadalcanal 12-13 November 1942. Planes from ENTERPRISE assisted in the sinking of battleship HIEI, one cruiser, three destroyers, and eleven auxiliaries and the damaging of four Japanese cruisers and four destroyers.

PENSACOLA returned to Espiritu Santo to join cruiser-destroyer Task Force 67 under Rear Admiral Carleton H. Wright. On 29 November, the task force sailed to intercept a Japanese destroyer-transport force expected off Guadalcanal the next night. Just before midnight of the 30th, the American ships transited Lengo Channel and headed past Henderson Field on Guadalcanal as the Japanese task group steamed on a southerly course west of Savo Island to enter "Ironbottom Sound."

The two opposing task forces clashed in the Battle of Tassafaronga. American destroyers launched torpedoes as the enemy range came within five miles of PENSACOLA's cruiser formation. Now gun flashes, tracers, and star shell candles stained the inky darkness. Japanese destroyer TAKANAMI, hit many times, was afire and exploding. American flagship MINNEAPOLIS (CA-36) took two torpedo hits that blasted her bow downward like an immense scoop and left her forecastle deck awash, but she continued to fight on. NEW ORLEANS (CA-32) next astern, closed the disabled MINNEAPOLIS and ran into the track of a torpedo that ripped off the forward part of the warship.

PENSACOLA turned left to prevent collision with two damaged American ships ahead of her. Silhouetted by the burning American cruisers, she came in the Japanese line of fire. One of 18 torpedoes launched by Japanese destroyers hit her below the mainmast on the portside. Her engine room flooded, three gun turrets went out of commission, and her oil tanks ruptured to make a soaked torch of her mast. Meantime, HONOLULU (CL-48) maneuvered radically at 30 knots, her guns continuing their rapid fire as she escaped the trap. But the last American cruiser in column, NORTHAMPTON (CA-26), took two torpedo hits to duplicate on a larger scale the havoc inflicted on PENSACOLA.

The oil-fed flames engulfed PENSACOLA's main deck aft where torpedoes and machine gun ammunition exploded. Only supreme effort and skillful damage control by her gallant men saved the ship. The fire, punctuated by the frightful explosion of 8-inch projectiles in her Number 3 turret, gradually subsided. PENSACOLA made steady progress towards Tulagi. She arrived there still aflame. After twelve hours the last fire was quenched. Her dead numbered 7 officers and 118 men. One officer and 67 men were injured.

Camouflaged as part of the island, PENSACOLA made repairs in Tulagi Harbor that enabled her to steam to Espiritu Santo, New Hebrides Island. She arrived there 6 December for emergency repairs by repair ship VESTAL (AR-4) until she sailed 7 January 1943 via Samoa to Pearl Harbor, arriving 27 January.

BATTLE OF TASSAFARONGA 30 NOVEMBER 1942
Seventeen days after the night Battle of Guadalcanal, 13 November 1942, the Fighting Fletcher was again in the heat of another night action on 30 November 1942-The Battle of Tassafaronga. In retrospect, this battle should never have been fought. In this action the American ships transited Lengo channel in the following order; Destroyers Fletcher, Perkins, Maury and Drayton; Cruisers Minneapolis, New Orleans, Pensacola, Honolulu, and Northhampton; Destroyers Lampson and Lardne. This sequence was maintained until the battle opened. The USS Fletcher, leading the van had traveled these same waters on the night of 13 November 1942, and was the only ship in the force that had gone through the Friday the 13th battle. This was a group of ships thrown together to replace those lost or damaged during the Battle of Guadalcanal, 13, 14, 15 November 1942. Admiral Kincaid, a veteran of the South Pacific, who was in command of this Task force was transferred when there were no pressing duties for him elsewhere and Admiral Wright, newly arrived 24 November on the Heavy Cruiser Minneapolis, was given Command of this Cruiser-Destroyer Task Force. On his second day in command, Wright was given a combat mission by Admiral Halsey to stop the re-supply missions being made by the Japanese Navy to their troops still on Guadalcanal. The change in command was unfortunate. On 29 November, Rear Admiral Wright held a hastily called conference with Rear Admiral Mahlon Tisdale and the commanding officers of the Task Force to go over Admiral Kinkaid's plan for this operation. The plan was accepted my Admiral Wright and after several delays, the Task Force left Espiritu Santo at 2300 hours on the 29th. The distance was 580 miles to Iron Bottom Sound. N the early evening of 30 November, when Admiral Wright's force was about to enter Lengo Channel, they narrowly avoided a collision with a friendly eastbound group consisting of three transports and five destroyers. Two destroyers of the transport group, Lawson and Larder, on orders from Admiral Halsey, immediately joined Wright's group. Although Commander Abercrombie in Lawson now became the senior destroyer officer present, Admiral Wright found it impossible to send him either his operation plan or special instructions. Wright ordered the somewhat bewildered Abercrombie to tag along astern of the cruiser column. As so often happened, a delay was experienced after requesting permission to open fire until the enemy ships had mover out of the ideal range. As a result, even though Wright's forces had the element of surprise, the enemy force of eight destroyers under of the command of Admiral Tanaka severely damaged three American heavy Cruisers and sank the heavy Cruiser Northhampton. It was only because of excellent damage control that the three other heavy cruisers were not lost. Only the light cruiser Honolulu came through without a hit. All of the heavy cruisers were hit like sitting ducks by one or two torpedoes. The Japanese force lost one Destroyer. After the firing stopped the lead destroyers Fletcher and Drayton were dispatched to pick up the survivors of the Northhampton. The Fletcher did a magnificent job, literally netting the 700 survivors by dragging cork floated nets through the water. The two destroyers searching in the darkness, with the aid of their motor whaleboats and strong stout swimmers, performed the remarkable feat of rescuing 773 men. Only 58 of the original crew were lost. Standing, dead still, stopped in the water of Iron Bottom Bay was an unnerving experience and especially for the crews in the fire rooms and engine rooms. It was necessary to get a few turns on the main turbine engine, revolutions, every few minutes to keep from developing a sag on the main turbine shaft. The Fletcher picked up nearly 700 survivors and the remainder were picked up by the Drayton. The Northhampton went down at 0304 hours 1 December in about 600 fathoms of water to join the many other ships already down in the Iron Bottom Sound. When the Fletcher returned to Espiritu Santo and started to tie up, there was a rush of the Northhampton survivors to the railing to see who was on the Drayton, and a list to the Port side resulted. The survivors and crew members were ordered to the center of the ship in order to tie up alongside. Sea water from the fuel bunkers had been pumped over the side before entering the harbor and this did tend to make the ship a bit top heavy. Post-mortem: It was the painful truth that the battle of Tassafaronga was a sharp defeat inflicted on an alert and superior cruiser force by a partially surprised and inferior destroyer force. It must be remembered that the United States force, though larger than the enemy's, had never before all steamed together, even in daylight, and it was a "scratch team", while Tanaka's force had been well trained and long practiced under the same commander. Tassafaronga, last major sea battle in the area of the southern Solomons, ended four months of vicious hull to hull slugging over the like of which neither the American nor the Japanese had ever seen. No man who fought in those bloody waters can forget the apprehension, the exhaustion and the terror that he experienced, the hideous forms of death that he witnessed, or the self-sacrificing heroism that gave him a new respect for his fellow seamen. "Saco", "Guadalcanal", "Tassafaronga", and the rest are no mere battle names to the survivors; they are flaming banners of deathless deeds by ships and men whose bones forever rest in Iron Bottom Sound.
