ENGAGING THE ENEMY

Click on image for
enlargement

Print edition:
countersigned by Doolittle Raiders Col. Richard E. Cole, Col. Robert Hite, Maj. Edward Saylor, Maj. Thomas Griffin and S/Sgt. David Thatcher



On April 18, 1942 a group of 16 B-25s carrying 80 men emerged from the Pacific sky to launch an historic attack on the central island of the Japanese empire proclaiming with unexpected force that war was coming to the Japanese homeland. Lt. Richard O. Joyce and the crew of Plane 10 (#40-2250) engaged and eluded as many as seventeen Japanese fighter aircraft throughout their mission. S/Sgt. Edwin W. Horton's twin-50s in the top turret played a crucial role in keeping the enemy at bay as Lt. Joyce piloted the B-25 across the hostile skies of Japan and on to China.
Sixty-nine years later, only five of the original 80 airmen that flew on the Doolittle Raid on Japan remain. Just enough to man a single B-25, one last crew. Time has been kind and granted you the opportunity to own an authentic piece of Doolittle Raider history but that door is closing. The print and canvas editions of "Engaging the Enemy" was signed by the actual Raiders attending their 69th reunion.
"Engaging the Enemy" was painted specifically for the 69th Omaha reunion, home to pilot Richard O. Joyce. The fine art canvas is an exact replica of William S. Phillips’ original 24” x 24” painting. Only by spending tens of thousands dollars for the original could you possess something better. The edition is limited to just 50 copies, so only a few will have the chance to own one.
The fine art print is three pieces of art in one. Two printed remarques, original Phillips pencil renderings of a Mitsubishi Zero and Crew 10’s Mitchell B-25 Bomber, enhance the entire presentation and frame the Raider’s signing area. The reproduction quality of this Giclée Paper is second to none.
You will own, with the print or canvas, a true and authentic historical document. No other artist has developed the deep relationship that Phillips has with the Doolittle Raiders. “Remembering the sacrifices of brave men and women helps us become more aware of how we should view this great country and the freedoms we so often take for granted,” says Bill Phillips. “This art helps us to keep these memories alive and gives us something to pass on to the next generation.”

EVASIVE ACTION OVER
SAGUMI BAY


Click on image for
enlargement
Shortly after bombing the Tokyo Gas and Electric Company, Pilot Lt. Harold F.Watson banks the B-25 Whirling Dervish steeply to avoid a Japanese cruiser that lay directly on the aircraft’s escape route to China. It was the ninth of sixteen aircraft to leave the carrier USS Hornet on the audacious April 18, 1942 Doolittle Raid on Japan. That United States Army Air Forces bombers could launch from a U.S. Navy aircraft carrier was inconceivable at the time. President Roosevelt claimed the aircraft came from a secret airbase in the mythical Shangri-La. American bombers striking the Japanese homeland and passing within sight of Mount Fuji, the most sacred mountain in all Japan, delivered a succinct message to the warring Axis nation: America, the Sleeping Giant, had begun to stir.
Evasive Action Over Sagami Bay is an authentic historical document, offered as both a fine art print and canvas edition, countered-signed by American heroes that participated in the Doolittle Raid. This is a unique opportunity to own and preserve an important moment in aviation and U.S. military history.

EVENING SONG

click on image for
enlargement
“In the summer,” Bill Phillips says, “my wife Kristi 
and I enjoy walking in a park near where we live whose 
ponds are home to beautiful swans. During one of our 
walks, we observed a young girl feeding two of these 
graceful birds who, in turn, were making soothing 
sounds of contentment. In Evening Song, I have brought
together both this experience and the peaceful feeling of
a late-spring evening of 50 years ago. It’s a romantic
journey to the past—hearts are displayed in the
 shutters of each window in the house, and if you look
 carefully at the pond in the foreground, you will notice
that it, too, forms a heart..

It is the last year of the war, and one of Colonel 
Glen W. Martin’s fleet of B-29s, punnily named “Dina 
Might,” surges over the clouds during its mission to 
bomb the industrial cities of Japan.But it is more than 
just the remembrance of a vital war effort. “This is not a 
portrayal of a particular mission” says aviation artist 
William Phillips, “but is rather a portrait, basically an 
homage to the Superfortress.”

FIRST BOOTS ON THE GROUND

click on image for
enlargement
I November 14, 1965, Ia Drang Valley, Vietnam—Amidst the low brush, elephant grass and enormous sun-baked termite mounds, clouds of dust lazily drift away from the clearing nicknamed LZ (Landing Zone) X-Ray. In preparation for an air assault by troops from the 1st Battalion, 7th Cavalry, United States artillery has been relentlessly pounding away at the perimeter of the LZ.

At 10:48 the helicopter touches down, and Lt. Col. Moore, Sgt. Major Plumley, Capt. Metsker, Bob Ouellette, Al Bosse and Vietnamese translator Mr. Nik become the first boots on the ground at Ia Drang.

Helicopter pilots Bruce Crandall and Ed Freeman would go on to receive the Medal of Honor for their actions during the battle of Ia Drang, a battle which would go down in history as one of the most intense of the Vietnam War. This three-day struggle would later be documented in the best-selling book We Were Soldiers Once…and Young by Lt. Gen. Hal Moore (Ret.) and Joseph Galloway.

William S. Phillips compellingly depicts the chaos of LZ X-Ray in First Boots on the Ground. The piece is countersigned by Lt. Gen. Hal Moore, (Ret.), Lt. Col. Bruce Crandall (Ret.), (MOH), Command Master Sgt. Basil Plumley, (Ret.), Bob Ouellette and Al Bosse.

FISH TALES AT BEAVER CAMP

Click on image for

enlargement
With no offense to the practitioners of the culinary arts, you just can’t beat the taste of a freshly caught trout, skillet fried on an open fire, a hundred miles from the nearest gas-range stove. Need we mention the view? It was designed and built by Mother Nature herself. As for Beaver Camp, well, you can find it anywhere you can land a de Havilland (DHC-2) Beaver, the work-horse float plane of the North Country. As for the fish tales themselves, a great deal of that depends of the company and the day. But as a rule of thumb, consider this: the wider the arms are spread, the greater the tale.

Fish Tales at Beaver Camp and Bill Phillips are featured in the August issue of Western Art Collector. As they say in the story, “Bill produces a sensitive andwonderfully composed landscape, and the depth and perspective of these paintings are outstanding.” We couldn’t agree more.

FUEL STATE CRITCAL

Click on image for
enlargement

Countersigners: Col. Richard E. Cole, Col. Robert L. Hite,
Maj. Thomas C. Griffin, S/Sgt. David J. Thatcher

The Raider’s carrier task force (TF-16) was spotted by Japanese vessels well before they arrived at the intended departure point so the Raiders were forced to launch from the carrier "Hornet" earlier than planned. Fuel calculations now fell short of the planned amount needed for their destination, Chuchow, China. Their arrival in China would be at night, rather than during daylight as originally planned. Fortunately, sailors on the "Hornet" filled ten, five-gallon gas cans and passed them hand-to-hand to each aircraft, providing the fuel that made the difference between pitching at sea and coming down over land. In this historical documentation on the Doolittle Raid, General Doolittle and his crew in aircraft 02344 break into a momentary area of clear sky. The last rays of sunlight bring only slight hope that they will survive their ordeal, as their fuel levels continue to fall and the hour of landfall is uncertain. "Fuel State Critical—Outcome in Doubt" is countered-signed by four of the Doolittle Raiders. The signing of the print took place at their April 2010 reunion in Dayton, OH. They include the Crew 1 co-pilot of Doolittle’s plane (the B-25 depicted here), Colonel Richard E. Cole, Lt. Colonel Robert L. Hite of Crew 16, Major Thomas Carson Griffin of Crew 9 and Staff Sergeant David J. Thatcher of Crew 7. Phillips’ Personal Commission Edition of the previous Raiders Fine Art Edition, "Toward a Setting Sun," reached an edition size of 298. Given that there are only 100 in the edition of "Fuel State Critical—Outcome in Doubt," this piece of history won’t last long!

THE GIANT BEGINS TO STIR

Doolittle asked that all the
raiders sign his painting, and
that each surviving senior
crew member sign a print
– now one of the most 
valuable in existence.
On the 18th of April, 1942 – 167th anniversary of 
Paul Revere’s ride – Lt. Col. Jimmy Doolittle’s B-25 
leads the way to Tokyo for a bombing raid to show the 
world that the United States is still alive and kicking 
four months after Japan’s attack on Pearl Harbor.The 16
B-25 Mitchells, army medium bombers, have left the 
carrier Hornet, and take individual courses for Japan at 
200 feet above the waves.And now Doolittle sights the
enemy shoreline and veers past coastal vessels so he 
can hit Tokyo from its less protected northern side.

of the Intruder
Making its combat debut in Vietnam in 1965, the 
Grumman A-6 Intruder provided U.S. Naval Aviation with
the capability to operate in some of the worst weather
in Southeast Asia. Guided by digital integrated attack
and navigation equipment, the aircraft ushered in a new
era of aviation technology that all but eliminated 
visibility problems.

GUARDIAN AT THE GATE

click on image for

Point Bonita Light, at the North West entrance to
 the San Francisco Bay was the second lighthouse at
 Point Bonita. The first light was atop the narrow
 headlands and shown forth at 306 feet above the
 roaring breakers of the Pacific. The only problem
 was that it was so high that most of the time it was
 obscured by fog. 

 In 1877 the Point Bonita light was relocated, with
 great effort, to the thin strip of rock called Lands
 End where it stands today as a guardian at the
 Gate. A welcome sight to those entering the San
 Francisco Bay from around the globe.

Bill has felt absolutely glued to his easel since last
fall, compelled to paint through the intense emotions we
have all felt. One of the results is this quintessentially 
American landscape including the reassuring icons of 
nature's bountiful crops, a church steeple sounding a 
call to prayer and a rainbow of hope. (Attention Phillips

THE HEAVENS PROCLAIM HIS GLORY

Throughout history man has built places of prayer
and worship, from the great cathedrals of Europe to the
quaint churches of Phillips Bay and the village of
Cotswold Hills. From here, the highest point in 
Dogwood County, the bells tolls over the rural 
countryside and rises heavenward, proclaiming the 
good news of a loving God. But, no matter how grand
orunique the works of man, they pale in comparison to
the evidence of the great creation. Evidence we witness
every day if we take the time to notice – for all creation
sings God’s praise and truly the heavens proclaim His 
glory.

Anniversary Canvas Editions
Target: Berlin. It was March 6, 1944 and B-17s and B-24s of the Mighty 8th Air Forces’ 1st, 2nd and 3rd Air Divisions streamed into a ninety-four-mile wave to attack Berlin. Among the massed bombers, the 100th Bomb Group (H) manned 20 B-17s flying at 21,000 feet, 200 miles west of Berlin. There, twenty-one Fw-190s bored in with deadly accuracy, downing fifteen Flying Fortresses into the fields below. Half of the crewmembers aboard the fallen bombers perished; the rest were imprisoned. Recklessly, one Focke-Wulf pilot, Oberleutnant Wolfgang Kretschmer, turned to attack the remaining B-17s alone and he, in turn, became the target of eight escorting P47 Thunderbolts of the 56th Fighter Group, the “Wolf Pack” led by Colonel Hub Zemke. Fighters dove and shot him down. Although injured and badly burned, Oberleutnant Kretschmer survived. It was the worst single day of air warfare for the 8th Air Force. Sixty-nine U.S. heavy bombers and eleven escort fighters were lost. But air warfare was about the bold acts of individuals who risked their lives daily and "The Hunter Becomes the Hunted" conveys how quickly the fates of war can turn. This Phillips aviation art classic is finally available as an Anniversary Edition, and for a select few, as a very limited and very stunning, oversized MasterWork™ Fine Art Canvas.

On March 6, 1944, fire and smoke seared the skies
above northern Germany. On this day, the U.S. Eighth
Air Force suffered the worst single day of air warfare of 
World War II. The losses were staggering9 U.S. heavy
bombers and 11 escort fighters, and 66 Luftwaffe
fighters. But air warfare was not about numbers; it was
about the bold acts of individuals, pilots and gunners,
who risked their lives daily. William S. Phillips’ The 
Hunter Becomes The Hunted portrays the machines of
the four men and the mission that brought them 
together; code named Mission 250
