We view the action just after 9.00 am during the second wave attack on the Fleet. Aichi D-3A1 dive-bombers from the carrier Kaga make a final attempt to destroy the Nevada as she lay beached at hospital Point. With Nevada's gunners defiantly defending their stricken ship, in the naval dock behind, the destroyer USS Shaw is on fire; moments later she will explode.
Behind her, in dry dock, the battleship Pennsylvania, and beyond her the cruiser Helena, and the Base Force Flagship Argonne, can all be seen in the swirling palls of dense smoke that pervade the navy yard.
A truly historic painting by the world's premier military artist recreates the awesome reality of one of the most significant and poignant events in history.
