Battle for the Islands by Nicolas Trudgian


Battle for the Islands by Nicolas Trudgian features F4U Corsairs in combat over the Solomon islands.

Corsairs of VMF 121 provide close air support to the US landings on Rendova, June 30, 1943. Fiercely contested, the invasion force was heavily attacked by Zero fighters and Mitsubishi G4M1 'Betty' bombers, flying from their base at Rabaul. Dog-fighting at tree-top height, VMF 121 Corsairs rip into a bunch of Betty bombers as they try to make their escape following their attack on shipping. On fire, the Betty in the foreground is doomed, and will shortly become one of 19 Japanese aircraft accounted for by VMF 121. Other Marine fighter units brought the total this day to a staggering 58 enemy aircraft destroyed. 

Each print in Nicolas Trudgian's Limited Edition, Battle For The Islands, is signed by three highly distinguished Marine Corps World War II fighter Aces:
Colonel Robert M. Baker
Colonel Robert Bruce Porter
Colonel James E. Swett.

 Published in 1999 this print sold out some time ago and is becoming increasingly difficult to find. This copy is in mint condition and comes with the original Certificate of Authenticity.
