D-DAY THE AIRBORNE ASSAULT by Robert Taylor

 

“With his unrivalled flair and talent Robert Taylor's superb image is one of the most iconic portrayals of the D-Day airborne assault of all time….”

It began shortly after midnight on 6 June 1944 when two American and one British Airborne Division started to drop en-masse into Normandy. Their mission: to secure the flanks for the mighty amphibious armada heading towards the invasion beaches. As dawn broke to reveal the bullet-swept beaches below, overhead the skies were still filled with troop-carrying aircraft towing gliders heading for the drop zones.

Robert Taylor’s iconic masterpiece D-Day - The Airborne Assault has been hailed by many leading veterans as the most realistic portrayal of D-Day air events rendered by any artist. Seen crossing a section of the invasion beaches, and closely escorted by P-51Bs of the 354th Fighter Group, C-47s of the 438th TCG tow CG-4 Waco gliders bringing in yet more reinforcements for the 82nd Airborne Division
