A signed and numbered print titled “North American B-25B Mitchell.” The printed note below the title reads: “Taking off from the deck of U.S.S. Hornet to attack Tokyo, 18th April 1942.” The scene depicted is the launch of the Doolittle Raid, a United States Air Force attack against four major Japanese cities during World War II. All but one of the planes involved in the attack crashed in China, and several men were killed or captured. However, the mission proved that Japan was vulnerable to air attack from the United States military, and therefore meaningfully boosted American morale. The print is signed by then-Lt. General James H. Doolittle (1896-1993), who planned the attack and flew one of the sixteen B-25B medium bombers involved. Doolittle advanced two grades--from lieutenant colonel to brigadier general--as a result of his leadership in the attack, and also received numerous honors from the United States and several of its allies. Most notably, he received the Medal of Honor from President Roosevelt. In 1985, twenty-six years after he retired from the U.S. Air Force, Doolittle was advanced to the grade of full general. The print is also signed by the artist, John Young, who is known for his depictions of aviation scenes. It is dated 1978. The edition number is 705/850, written in pencil in the lower left corner. The print is matted and framed. Condition: Excellent. Slight scratching to frame and glass. Not examined outside of frame. Dimensions in frame w 22 in x h 20 in.
