AIR ARMADA - Framed Collectors Piece
13th August 1940: ADLERTAG – EAGLE DAY
The Battle of Britain was at its height: Luftwaffe attacks on Britain were taking their toll and the German commanders insisted the RAF was close to collapse. 13th August was the first day of the Luftwaffe’s all-out effort to severely damage or destroy the RAF and deliver victory to Goering.
Robert Taylor’s superb piece takes us to the heart of the action as Heinz Bär, the Luftwaffe’s top-scoring NCO Ace of the Battle of Britain, climbs away from his airfield near Calais with the other pilots of 1./JG51 to escort Do17s of KG76 for yet another deadly attack on the RAF. Away in the distance, Me110s from EPRG 210 also prepare to join the epic encounters that lie ahead.
This is rapidly becoming a very collectible edition in Robert’s extensive portfolio and our expert framing team have enhanced this copy with the inclusion of some outstanding signatures to create a completely unique SIX signature collector’s piece.
The print has been personally autographed by two famous Luftwaffe Aces who flew during the Battle of Britain and conservation framed to include the photographs and original signatures of a further four highly-regarded Luftwaffe Aces who took part:
- Oberst Hajo Hermann KC with Oak Leaves and Swords
- Major Hans-Ekkehard Bob KC
