"Toward the Setting Sun" features the USS Hornet (CV-8) with the Doolittle Raiders’ 16 B-25s lashed down across her deck as she steams majestically into a Pacific sunset. SBDs of the USS Enterprise’s (CV-6) Scouting Squadron 6 (VS-6) patrol the skies above. At the time, the mission was referred to as the Halsey-Doolittle Raid; and here Phillips pays homage to the Navy’s significant role.

"Sending two United States aircraft carriers, Task Force 16, to the coast of the Rising Sun in 1942 was a courageous and risky move; especially for a nation reeling from Japan’s string of Pacific victories. Most of the ships and sailors that made up Vice Admiral Halsey’s TF 16 would six weeks later deal a staggering blow to the Japanese Fleet off Midway. The Halsey-Doolittle Raid truly marked when the Rising Sun began to set." - William Phillips
