Fortress at Rest by Richard Taylor


Fortress at Rest by Richard Taylor features a B-17G Flying Fortress from the 398th Bomb Group during the winter of 1944.

The bomber crews of the US Eighth Air Force rightfully earned their place in aviation history through heroism and devotion to duty, becoming one of the most highly decorated organisations of WWII with 17 Medal of Honor recipients and 66 Distinguished Unit Citation awards. But, with almost 6,000 heavy bombers lost, the cost of victory had come at an enormous price – only one in three airmen had survived the air battle over Europe.

In this evocative piece, Richard Taylor recreates a brief moment of reprieve as deep overnight snow temporarily grounds the Mighty Eighth during the bitter winter of 1944. With the morning sunlight glinting across the snow-covered landscape, a B-17G Flying Fortress of the 398th Bomb Group stands quietly near the perimeter of RAF Nuthampstead, awaiting the thaw that will allow the flying to begin again.

Each print in Richard Taylor's Limited Edition, Fortress at Rest, is signed by three veterans who flew B-17s with the Eighth Air Force in WWII:
1st Lt KEN SHARPE - Pilot with the with 388th BG
1st Lt CHARLES ‘NORM’ STEVENS - Bombardier with the 351st BG
1st Lt JAMES L. WHITE JR - Pilot with the 398th BG.
