In the Battle of the Java Sea, American, British, Dutch, and Australian Forces attempted to stop the Japanese invasion of Java and subsequently encountered and engaged a Japanese covering force of roughly equal strength. The Allied fleet lost three destroyers and two light cruisers. On February 28, the USS Houston and the HMAS Perth—after surviving the Battle of the Java Sea and retiring en route to the Sunda Strait—decided to engage Japanese landing forces and its accompanying convoy. Both the USS Houston and the HMAS Perth were sunk in the early morning of March 1.
