Stan Stokes. As the tide was clearly turning in favor of the Allies, the huge Yamato battleship — which had served the Japanese since just after the attack at Pearl Harbor — was sent on a suicide mission to Okinawa late in the war. Swarmed by hundreds of aircraft, the Yamato was destroyed on April 7, 1945. This Signature Edition print recreates the attack and depicts Avengers from the USS Yorktown blasting the ship. Arrives signed by the artist and William Webb Patterson, a pilot with VT-9 who participated in battle on that fateful day. 16"x 11½".
