Mission Beyond Darkness (Artist Proof)
Signed Limited Edition Print - World War II - Robert Taylor
Following the attack against Admiral Ozawa's Japanese carrier fleet on June 20, 1944, Admiral Mitscher defies all rules of naval engagement. In total darkness, with the ever-present danger of enemy submarines, he orders every ship in his Task Force 58 to switch on lights to guide over 100 returning carrier-borne aircraft, all desperately low on fuel. Amid the confusion, unable to get a landing slot aboard the USS Lexington, and now out of fuel, a pilot and his gunner scramble from their ditched SB2B Curtiss Helldiver, as a Fletcher class destroyer manoeuvres to make the pick up.
