New Osprey Original Painting

Just completed the latest Osprey book cover art.  This one depicts a Nakajima B5N ‘Kate releasing its torpedo during an attack on United States Navy warships during the Pacific War.

This painting is the first ever for Osprey when the author has failed to provide adequate references for a particular combat or action.  As such, the painting is generic as possible, along with the description!  It is however based upon the attack on USS Hornet during the Battle of the Santa Cruz Islands 25-27 October 1942.

The original painting is now for sale, just click on the image for more details.
