NT326. Messerschmitt Country by Nicolas Trudgian. <p> Nobody, least of all Allied aircrew, ever doubted the tenacity of the Luftwaffe, more particularly that of the German fighter pilots.  From the early encounters during the Battle of Britain to the greeat air battles in defence of their homeland late in the war, at all times they were held in high regard, even if resented as a foe.  At no time was their dedication, determination, and courage better demonstrated than during the final stages of World War Two.  By the summer of 1944 the Allies had gained a foothold in Normandy, and total air superiority above northern France.  German installations and ground positions were being pounded daily from the air, and the Ruhr, the heartland of industrial Germany, was under constant siege.  Even the factories in southern Germany were not safe from the attentions of the USAAF bombers by day, and the RAF by night.  But in spite of the pressures of mounting losses and diminished supplies, the Luftwaffe fought doggedly on in best traditions of the fighter pilot.  The morning of 19th July 1944 saw the USAAFs 8th and 15th Air Forces mount an attack of awesome proportion against the aircraft factories in the region of Munich.  To combat a seemingly overwhelming force of 1400 bombers and almost as many fighter escorts, the Luftwaffe were able to put up just three Gruppen from JG300 and one from JG302, flying a mix of Me109Gs and Fw190s - barely 50 serviceable fighters between them.  They were joined by a dozen Me109s of II./JG27, these fighters desperately trying to defend the very factories in which they were made. <p><b>Sold without companion print.</b><b><p> Signed by Oberleutnant Siegfried Bethke (deceased), <br>Oberleutnant Gunther Seeger <br>and <br>Oberleutnant Ernst Scheufele (deceased), in addition to the artist.  <p> Signed limited edition of 350 prints. <p> Image size 25 inches x 16 inches (64cm x 41cm)
DHM6183F. The Struggle for Malta by Ivan Berryman.<p> Having been initially intercepted by just three ageing Gloster Gladiators, who gallantly gave both the Germans and Italians the impression of a much bigger resistance in the skies above Malta, the Italian Air Force was suddenly confronted by the more capable Hawker Hurricanes of 261 (F) Sqn, commanded by Sqn Ldr D W Balden.  The previously unescorted bombers of the Regia Aeronautica suddenly required the presence of fighters to protect the marauding bombers, as depicted here, where Macchi  200s of 6° Gruppo 1° Stormo, reel around the sky to chase off the Hurricanes from the attacking Savoia Marchetti SM.79s above Grand Harbour in the summer of 1940. <b><p>Artists Special Reserve of 50 prints. <p>Image size 12.5 inches x 8 inches (32cm x 20cm)
