STRIKE ON BERLIN
30 January 1943
For Goering - the man who had once promised the German people that ‘no enemy aircraft will fly over the Reich territory’ - the raid on Berlin was utter humiliation.
Anthony Saunders' dramatic painting pays tribute to this pivotal moment in the war when RAF Mosquito's carried out their first two daylight raids on Berlin to disrupt major speeches by Goering and Goebbels. His masterful brush brings the scene into vibrant, spectacular life with painstaking attention to detail, capturing the Mosquito B.Mk.IVs of 105 Sqn departing the target area, following their successful strike on the Haus des Rundfunk.
Each print has been hand numbered and personally signed by the artist. Importantly no less than three highly distinguished Mosquito crew who flew many of those dangerous missions to Berlin have personally signed every print in this release.
- Flight Lieutenant Ken Tempest
- Flight Lieutenant Colin Bell DFC AFC
