EYE OF THE SUN
by Robert Taylor
A PORTFOLIO TO COMMEMORATE THE 75th ANNIVERSARY OF THE BATTLE OF BRITAIN 1940 - 2015
You can feel the tension in this evocative painting as Messerschmitt Bf109s from 7./JG2 Richthofen head out on a long-range fighter patrol in September 1940. With the sun behind them they hope to launch a surprise attack on unsuspecting RAF aircraft, however these enemy raiders will soon be intercepted by some of Fighter Command’s most determined ‘defenders of the realm’.
Many of the Luftwaffe’s great names didn't survive the war, however three of the most iconic Aces that flew in the Battle of Britain have signed this outstanding release:
