A tribute to the heroic aircrews of the U.S. Eighth Air Force who fought so valiantly in the war-torn skies over occupied Europe during World War II.
‘The Americans gave us the best they had…..they were the bravest of the brave……’ were just some of the words chosen by Air Chief Marshal Sir Arthur ‘Bomber’ Harris to describe the heroism of those who served with the U.S. Eighth Air Force during World War II, their daylight bombing campaign playing a major part in the defeat of Nazi Germany. In over three years of operations the bombers of the ‘Mighty Eighth’ inflicted destruction on a scale from which the enemy never recovered. Its fighter pilots, too, played their part for without them the bombers they protected could never have survived the Luftwaffe’s wrath.
Remembering the outstanding courage, heroism and sacrifice endured by all the airmen of the Eighth Air Force, Jim Dietz – himself a legend in the world of aviation art – has created this stunning vignette study, a tableau that stands as a lasting memorial to those airborne warriors who fought so valiantly to defeat Nazi tyranny.
