This precious document was drawn by the lead pilot of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, Mitsuo Fuchida. He led personally the first wave and this beautiful piece of art is his post-attack damage assessment map. Japanese preciosity in the art of war. It was auctioned by Christie’s of New York three years ago and someone bought it for “just” $425,000.
A day of anniversaries, it seems. 75 years for this one.
