THE SINKING OF THE TIRPITZ
When Churchill demanded that the Tirpitz be sunk, it was for a reason; Hitler’s mighty battleship was a terrible threat to the North Atlantic convoys, Britain’s lifeline. It was a difficult challenge for the crews of RAF Bomber Command as the Tirpitz lay in a heavily defended Norwegian Fjord but, on 12 November 1944, crews from 9 & 617 Squadrons finally succeeded in sinking the mighty battleship.
This outstanding print by one of the world's foremost aviation artists, Gerald Coulson, depicts the Lancasters of 617 Squadron delivering the fatal blow to the Tirpitz and has become one of the most sought after pieces in the Coulson portfolio.
