The commemorative edition published in 1993 is signed by 12 leading Fighter Aces and Leaders of the German Luftwaffe and is the most successful group of pilots ever to come together to sign a limited edition print. Robert Taylor has chosen his painting to represent a Luftwaffe aerial assault by their most successful fighter, the ME109, on incoming B-17 formations attacking the German homeland.In the foreground the Staffel Commander is leading the attack, his cannons blazing as he closes on a box formation of B-17s with his Staffel pilots close on his heels into the attack. In the background, another Group of Staffel ME109 fighters takes on the outer box of the B-17 Fortress formation. The Luftwaffe Aces know they must face a wall of fire from the B-17 gun crews that will not flinch in the fight but press home the attack in spite of the tremendous gunfire. The lucky ones will survive to fight again tomorrow. Overall print size: 35 1/2" X 25".
