BRIDGE BUSTERS The D-Day 65th Anniversary Portfolio
With orders to destroy, delay or disrupt enemy forces en-route to the Normandy battle area, P-47 Thunderbolts from the 78th Fighter Group launch a blistering high-speed, low-level attack, on a German freight train in occupied northern France, June 1944. Desperately attempting to transport vital supplies to the front by daylight, it has fallen prey to the cannons and bombs of the eagle eyed Thunderbolt pilots.
In the weeks following D-Day, the pilots of the 78th FG would fly almost continuous missions to seek out any German vehicles, positions and forces they could find; and cause chaos and mayhem to the enemy’s lines of communication ahead of the advancing Allied forces.
This classic edition was released as part of The D-Day 65th Anniversary Portfolio to commemorate the anniversary of the Allied Invasions of Normandy and is available as a matching numbered pair with JUNO BEACH.
Every print in all of the editions is individually hand numbered and personally signed by the artist and two highly-respected USAAF fighter pilots, who flew interdiction missions in P-47s during the Normandy Invasions:
- Captain Wayne Coleman
- First Lieutenant Samuel 'Buzzard' Lutz
- 26.375 x 20.625 inches
