Bringing The Peacemaker Home By Robert Taylor
A limited edition to commemorate the 8th Air Force bombers of World War II, and their fighter escorts.
Damaged by Fw190s during a raid to Leipzig in July 1944, B-17 Fortress 'The Peacemaker' of the 91st Bomb Group has slipped out of formation and is struggling to maintain height. Her crew are busy jettisoning everything possible to save weight, as the English coast comes into view.
Thanks to their efforts and the close escort provided by P-51s of the 361st Fighter Group, The Peacemaker would make it back to Bassingbourne that day; eight other bombers from the raid did not.
Overall print size:
Each print is signed by aircrew personally involved in bringing ‘The Peacemaker’ home, and in fighter escort.
