Description

One of the most successful of the P-38 equipped units was the 475th Fighter Group, “Satan’s Angels,” and it is the P-38s of this famous unit that Nicolas Trudgian has portrayed in his tribute to the American Air Forces that made Victory in the Pacific possible.

It is March 1945 and the P-38s of the 475th FG are involved in a huge dogfight with Japanese Zeros over the coast of Indo-China. Flying “Pee Wee V” is Lt Ken Hart of the 431st Fighter Squadron, who has fatally damaged a Zero in a blistering head on encounter. The second P-38 – “Vickie” – belongs to Captain John “Rabbit” Pietz, who would end the War an Ace with six victories.

THE ANNIVERSARY EDITION

Joining artist Nicolas Trudgian, every print is individually signed in pencil by highly decorated P-38 pilots who flew in combat with the 475th Fighter Group in the Pacific theater during World War II.

Colonel PERRY J. DAHL
Captain JOSEPH FORSTER
