Pack 668. Pack of two Falaise battle WW2 prints by Robert Taylor and Geoff Lea. - Airforce-Art.com

DHM2711. Closing the Gap by Robert Taylor. <p> As Typhoon Mk1b fighter-bombers of 247 Squadron exit the target area near Falaise at full throttle, the havoc wreaked in their wake bears witness to the devastation of their powerful rockets. Fuel and ammunition from the retreating German column explode with shattering detonations, the savagery of the attack demoralising the enemy into stunned oblivion. The Typhoons will hurtle back to base to re-arm and hastily re-fuel, ready for yet another withering strike on the encircled Wehrmacht columns. This stunning rendition from the the worlds premier aviation artist pays tribute to the brave young RAF fighter pilots of the twenty squadrons of rocket-firing Hawker Typhoons who flew those perilous ground attacks during the Battle of Normandy. <b><p> Signed by Squadron Leader Percival H. Beake DFC, <br>Warrant Officer Jack Hodges DFC <br>and <br>Warrant Officer John Abe Lincoln. <p> Signed limited edition of 350 prints. <p> Paper size 35 inches x 25 inches (89cm x 64cm) Image size 28.5 inches x 17 inches (72cm x 43cm)
DHM402. Taming the Tiger by Geoff Lea. <p>It is August 1944, barely two months since the Allies landed their first troops on the beaches of Normandy.  After the failed Operation Luttich  (codename given to a German counterattack during the Battle of Normandy, which took place around the American positions near Mortain from 7 August to 13 August, 1944 )  The German Panzer Divisions were in full retreat, The British and American Generals believed it to be critical to halt them before they cauld regroup. Caught in the Gap at Falaise, the battle was to be decisive. Flying throughout a continuous onslaught, rocket-firing Typhoons kept up their attacks on the trapped armoured divisions from dawn to dusk. The effect was devastating: at the end of the ten day battle the 100,000 strong German force was decimated. The battle of the Falaise Pocket marked the closing phase of the Battle of Normandy with a decisive German defeat.  It is believed that between 80,000 to 100,000 German  troops were caught in the encirclement of which 10,000 to 15,000 were killed, 45,000 to 50,000 taken prisoner, and around 20,000 escaped . Shown here are German Tiger I tanks under continues attack by Royal Aoir Force Typhoons. <b><p> Signed limited edition of 1000 prints.  <p>Image size 23 inches x 15 inches (58cm x 38cm)
