Crack Ace Robert Taylor Aviation Art

A new book and print portfolio paying tribute to one of the Luftwaffe's great Aces - Helmut Wick

Shortly after his appointment as Geschwaderkommodore of JG2 ‘Richthofen’, Major Helmut Wick describes the outcome of a recent duel to his fellow officers.

Hartmann, Barkhorn, Rall, Rudorffer - names that are amongst the greatest Aces in history - but had he lived, Wick might have surpassed them all.

At the time of his appointment as Kommodore of JG2 he was the youngest Major in the Luftwaffe and only the fourth recipient of the Knight’s Cross with Oak Leaves. By 28 November 1940, with 56 victories, he was the highest-scoring Luftwaffe Ace ever when his luck finally ran out and he was shot down and killed over the Channel. His tally of victories may have been surpassed but his legend was never forgotten.

Crack Ace is the latest release in Robert Taylor's increasingly collectible series of Masterwork drawings, created with unrivalled skill using his striking graphite and paint combination.

Every print in this commemorative edition is signed by a prominent Luftwaffe Fighter Pilot:

Lieutnant HORST JAEKEL Bf109 pilot with 3./JG4


Arrival of Eagles

To complete the portfolio, each print is issued with a matching-numbered, hard-back copy of the book ARRIVAL OF EAGLES by distinguished author and historian Andy Saunders.
