This is a matted and framed circa 1965 four star admiral commission for Admiral John S. Thach, Commander-in-Chief, United States Naval Forces, Europe. Thach started his naval career on battleships and later became an aviator and trainer. Developer of the "Thach Weave", a successful aerial tactic against the formidable Japanese Zero, Thach further cemented his reputation as a tactician when he devised the effective "blue blanket" strategy against kamikaze raids. Between being promoted to Rear Admiral and later Vice Admiral, Thach made it to the cover of Time magazine in 1958 for his Cold War era work in anti-submarine warfare. This commission to four star admiral was awarded in March 1965, two years before his retirement.
Approximately 23-5/8" in height by 19-5/8" in width.
MATERIALS / CONSTRUCTION:
Paper, matting, foil, glass, wooden frame, cardboard backing, metal hardware.
