COMMEMORATING THE MOST PIVOTAL NAVAL VICTORY OF WORLD WAR II
Brimming with overconfidence, few on board the Japanese carrier Soryu
noticed the SBD Dauntless bombers gathering overhead. Within a matter
of minutes a few courageous US Navy pilots would change the course of
Anthony Saunders’ new action-packed painting recreates the scene
from the Battle of Midway as the SBD Dauntless pilots pull out of their
death-defying dives having delivered their 1000lb bombs perfectly on target
with three direct hits on the Japanese carrier. Already there is utter
chaos aboard the Soryu as exploding ammunition and igniting fuel erupt
onto the flight deck from the hangars below. Secondary explosions rip
through the ship, fires rage beyond control and her hull shudders to contain
the violent inferno. The Soryu is doomed.
