The painting shows Halsey's flagship the USS New Jersey with a Fletcher class destroyer in the foreground. It shows elements of Admiral Halsey's 3rd fleet steaming into action against remaining units of the Japanese carrier force off Cape Engano in the Philippines, on the morning of October 25th. This was a brazen and ultimately controversial move that would cast concerns on Halsey's leadership. Other elements are in the background while overhead are naval air forces launched into action from nearby US carriers.
