Issued with a copy of Richards pencil print, USS Hornet, every one of these historic two print portfolio's is personally signed by Doolittle Raiders and a crew member of the USS Hornet during the raid. This will prove to be one of the most important editions in Richard Taylor's growing portfolio, providing what could be one of the final opportunities to acquire a limited edition signed by the last surviving veterans of the legendary Doolittle Raiders.

 

It was the morning of Monday, 18 April 1942 and, taking a final look at the carrier rapidly disappearing into the distance, the B-25s headed west on what each of the five man crews knew was a one-way ride. With luck they might make it to Nationalist China but first they had an important mission to complete - destination Tokyo! Four months earlier the Japanese had launched their blistering unprovoked attack on Pearl Harbor leaving America reeling. As setback followed setback, America needed retribution and the man chosen for the task was Lt. Col. James Doolittle.

Planning one of the most audacious raids ever undertaken, Doolittle and his chosen band of raiders would attempt the impossible - a direct strike at the heart of Imperial Japan. It was what the enemy least expected.

Richard Taylor’s powerful new painting Out of the Dragons Den depicts the scene immediately after the Raiders had carried out their mission. One of the last B-25 Mitchell's, having successfully bombed its target, makes its escape towards mainland China. As the navigator sets the new course, their path takes them close to targets hit by other Raiders, dark columns of smoke rising rapidly from the burning oil and carnage below.
