The story behind the painting...


After the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor and the US entry into WWII the US Naval Submarine Force was the primary offensive force available in the Pacific that might be able to forestall the Japanese advance south toward Australia .  Although mismanaged and crippled with defective torpedoes, the boats such as this one of the Perch Class headed out to do battle with the Imperial Japanese Navy.
