Yamamoto's Last Flight - Signed Limited Edition Lithograph - Mission Pilot

Admiral Isuro Yamamoto was well aware of the dangers of war with the United States.  Many believe he opposed war.  As a Japanese patriot, he planned the Pearl Harbor attack as one that would give Japan its greatest chance of success...at least for a negotiated peace.  By 1943 the poker playing, English speaking Admiral surely knew that the war was lost.  Perhaps he wished to die in battle.  More or less he got his wish.  The Yamamoto Mission, carried out by the US Army Air Corps P-38's was both well planned and dangerous.  This famous painting on an 11 by 14 litho is signed by both the artist and Jack Jacobs, who flew as the wingman of the attack Commander, John Mitchell.  Would look great on your den wall.  Obtained at the Fresno Air Show that featured the last reunion of the Doolittle Raiders.  MB100
