THE BATTLE FOR ITALY PORTFOLIO

ANNOUNCING THE LATEST PAIR OF LIMITED EDITIONS FROM THE STUDIO OF ANTHONY SAUNDERS PAYING TRIBUTE TO THE USAAF IN THE ITALIAN THEATRE DURING WWII:

The last remaining units of the fascist Italian Air Force attempt to engage B25s from the 340th Bomb Group who have successfully destroyed a vital enemy rail bridge in the strategic Brenner Pass, northern Italy, 10 April 1945. The enemy Me109s are completely routed by escorting P51 Mustangs of the 325th Fighter Group who are quickly on the scene.

THE SIGNATURES
Each print is personally signed by a B-25 Pilot who flew Bombing missions in Southern Italy, the edition is also signed by the artist, and hand numbered.

Second Lieutenant GENE KOSCINSKI
Joining up in 1943, Gene Koscinski graduated as a bomber pilot and soon found himself in the thick of the action with the 780th BS, 465th Bomb Group based at Pantanella in southern Italy, flying his first combat mission in November 1944. Tasked with the destruction of enemy facilities throughout Italy, southern Europe and the Balkans, the 465th were crossing the treacherous Alps on a daily basis. And flying heavily laden bombers over mountains in winter, often under fire, was a tough call. During his tour Gene survived two crashes and lived to tell the tale. Transferring to the USAF, he retired from the service in 1956.
