While over 350 U.S. Navy warships and patrol craft were sunk or damaged beyond repair between 1941 and 1945, in the seven decades since, less than 30 US Navy ships have been lost directly due to enemy action or accidents. Notable among these: the USS Magpie, due to a North Korean mine; the USS Liberty, which was attacked by Israeli Defense Forces; the USS Pueblo, captured by North Korea and its crew held as prisoners for a year; the USS Frank E Evans, which was split in two by the Australian Navy carrier HMAS Melbourne after inexperienced US Navy officers conducted emergency maneuvers.
