America Strikes Back by Robert Taylor


One of a pair of limited editions (the other being Morning Thunder) by Robert Taylor commemorating the 60th Anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbour, December 7th 1941. This edition is now sold out at the publishers.

The very first air combat fought by American pilots following the surprise attack upon Pearl Harbor.  In less than one hour America struck back in a war that was to end in total victory.  As the assault mounted on the Pacific Fleet in Pearl Harbor, simultaneously the air base at Wheeler Field came under heavy attack.  Two young USAAF pilots, Kenneth Taylor and George Walsh, quickly got their P-40 Tomahawks airborne.  Winging southwards towards Ewa Field they ripped into a dozen or more enemy planes attacking the marine field.  Diving into the formation they each downed 'Val' fighter-bombers.  

Robert Taylor's painting shows Ken Taylor in his P-40 tomahawk, with George Walsh in close company, bringing down his second enemy aircraft on December 7, 1941, an Aichi D-3Al ' Val' dive-bomber.  In the background palls of smoke rise from Hangar 6 housing the naval float planes, and the up-turned battleship Oaklahoma.
