“From the Battle of Britain onwards, the Luftwaffe became increasingly
over-extended as theatres of operations grew and new Fronts were opened,
often covering vast areas of territory as in the Desert and Russia. Spread
over so many Fronts, so much was asked of its pilots.....”.Adolf
Appropriately, Robert Taylor has chosen the Me l 09s of JG52 as his subject to represent the fighter pilots of the Luftwaffe in his new tribute to these courageous flyers, with his breathtaking painting Horrido! With the traditional battle cry ringing in their ears Squadron Commander Hptm Wolfgang Ewald leads pilots of I./JG52 into combat. Based at Coquelles/Calais in September 1940, the JG-52 Me l09s hurtle down in a high-speed dive to engage the enemy during the ferociously fought Battle of Britain. Robert eloquently depicts these sleek and deadly fighters high over the Channel, glinting and menacing against an ominous backdrop of heavy cumulous clouds -the world’s foremost aviation artist’s skill bringing to life the Luftwaffe’s most successful fighter aircraft in action.
Securing its position in the annals of aviation art, each print in this
fine Luftwaffe Aces edition has been signed by some of the most famous
Luftwaffe fighter pilots of World War II. With an astounding 1225 aerial
victories between them, these distinguished veterans of air combat proudly
represent the famous Luftwaffe fighter wings and the pilots who fought
- many of them throughout the entire duration of World War I I. The Military
