Interrogation Nav 78, Vice Admiral Sentaro Omori

13 Nov 1945


OMORI, Sentaro, Vice Admiral, I.J.N.

OMARI was a regular officer of 30 years service. As Commander, 1st Destroyer Squadron he engaged in the planning for and the occupation of the Western ALEUTIANS. With regard to the ALEUTIAN Operations he evinced an accurate general knowledge of the campaign, but his memory of times and dates was not as accurate as those of his Chief of Staff, Captain ARICHIKA. He was Commander, 5th Cruiser Division and Officer in Tactical Command during the night cruiser action at EMPRESS AUGUSTA Bay, 1-2 November 1943. He drew from memory a track chart of this action which was accurate in detail.

Commander, 1st Destroyer Squadron PEARL HARBOR, ALEUTIANS October 1940-October 1942
Commander, 5th Cruiser Division Myoko (F)  October 1942-November 1943
Head of Torpedo School YOKOSUKA November 1943-August 1945
