DESTINATION TOKYO - various signed editions


Price per Unit (piece): £110.00


PUBLISHED IN ASSOCIATION WITH THE DOOLITTLE RAIDERS

The daylight raid on Tokyo, led by Lt Col James H. Doolittle on Sunday 18 April 1942, has rightfully entered the history books as one of the most daring and courageous operations of the Second World War.

Specially commissioned to commemorate the 75th Anniversary of the Doolittle Tokyo Raid in support of the James H. Doolittle Education Fund, Anthony Saunder’s inspirational painting portrays the dramatic moment that Lt Col Jimmy Doolittle lifts his B-25 off the pitching deck of the USS Hornet. Having timed his launch to perfection he climbs steeply away, ready to adjust his compass bearing for a direct line to Tokyo. On the sodden deck behind him the crews of the remaining 15 aircraft, whose engines are warmed, ready and turning, will quickly follow their commanding officer into the murky sky.

The Publisher has worked closely over the years with the Doolittle Raiders in publishing this release. It is of great historical importance that the prints are personally autographed by veterans that took part in the raid, allowing enthusiasts the opportunity to acquire a momentous collector’s piece in what is likely to be the last Doolittle Raiders signed edition that will ever be made available.
