Landing craft negotiate their way through the choppy seas and mined beach obstacles to discharge men at the water’s edge, ready to assault the high sea wall, as tanks begin to open fire on nearby enemy positions. By the end of the day more than 21,000 men had landed on Juno, the second most heavily defended of all the D-Day beaches, with the Canadians advancing further inland than any other Allied troops.
This classic piece is released as part of The D-Day 65th Anniversary Portfolio to commemorate the Allied Invasions of Normandy and is available both individually and as part of a pair with BRIDGE BUSTERS.
Each print in every edition has been hand numbered and personally signed by the artist as well as two highly distinguished Spitfire pilots who flew combat over the D-Day invasion beaches.
