It is 29th July 1940. The Battle of Britain is approaching its height yet the exhausted RAF pilots are able to beat off the attack, dispatching four Stukas and two Me109s, for the loss of just one of their own.
The Junkers Ju87 Sturzkampfbomber, known to the British simply as the Stuka, had already acquired a deadly reputation across Europe, its siren screaming as the ungainly dive-bomber struck terror into the hearts of those below. In 1940 its pilots crossed the Channel with their grim-looking aircraft to terrorize the southern towns and ports of England.
This outstanding release from the master of Aviation Art is an example of an artist at the peak of his ability. Robert has produced a simply amazing painting and with the prints personally signed by Luftwaffe and RAF veterans of the Battle of Britain, it makes for a very collectible edition.
