Rare secondary market print by Robert Taylor signed by four great Luftwaffe Aces.
The ancient Norman monastery on Mont St. Michel provides the majestic backdrop as a group of Me109s race across the coast returning to their forward base in northern France after a fighter sweep across the English Channel in early 1941.
During the spring of 1941 almost all of the great Luftwaffe fighter leaders duelled across the English Channel on a daily basis with RAF Fighter Command. But the Abbey of Mont St Michel has seen it all before: built by the Normans on a solid rock of granite rising 250 feet out of the sea, this ancient monastery has witnessed conflict over almost a thousand years. It now plays backdrop to Robert Taylor’s iconic painting.
Each print in Robert Taylor's Limited Edition, Aces on the Western Front, is signed by Luftwaffe veterans:
Generalleutnant Hannes Trautloft
Oberst Herbert Ihlefeld KC with Oak Leaves and Swords
Generalmajor Dietrich Hrabak KC with Oak Leaves
