Oscar Valley
by Jim Laurier

This artwork appears in the Osprey book P-40 Warhawk vs Ki-43 Oscar - China 1944-45
by Carl Molesworth. The image below came from a postcard in the webmaster's collection.

The caption from the book for this painting reads:

P-40Ns of the 75th FS, 23rd FG and Ki-43-IIs of the 48th Sentai clashed at low altitude
near Hengshan, in China, on the morning of August 8th, 1944. Eight P-40s of the 75th, led
by Major Don Quigley "ran into nine Oscars near Hangshen. Major Quigley found an Oscar
apparently crippled and chased it all the way to Lukow on the deck. He got in three head-on
passes, and several times the airplane seemed to be out of control, but always recovered
right on the deck. Major Quigley ran out of ammunition and broke away without seeing the
airplane go in." Lt. Bob Peterson described the combat as "a fight down to the treetops."
75th FS pilots claimed one victory (Peterson's), two probables and four damaged.
