Volume 46, Number 3 (1993) Summer
The escort carrier USS Ommaney Bay (CVE 79), burning out of control, suffers hangar deck explosions an hour after being struck by a Japanese kamikaze aircraft while operating with Task Force 77 off Luzon on 4 January 1945. The artist, John S. Burrows, Jr., was an eyewitness, commanding a screening ship, the destroyer escort Edmonds (DE 406); he produced this watercolor on board (painting his own ship into the foreground). Captain Burrows reports that the Ommaney Bay's hulk was ultimately sunk by a U.S. destroyer—in the last months of a war strongly foreshadowed by the events described in an article by Dr. Sadao Asada that begins on page 82 of this issue.
