Sinking the Tirpitz by Nicolas Trudgian


Sinking the Tirpitz by Nicolas Trudgian features Lancasters of 9 and 617 Squadrons attacking the German battleship Tirpitz.

After attempts spanning four years, on 12th November 1944, Lancasters of Number 9 and 617 Squadrons successfully attacked the German battleship Tirpitz in Tromso Fjord, Norway.  Led by Wing Commander James Tait, using the 12000lb 'Tallboy' bomb devised by Barnes Wallis, the Lancaster crews devastated the huge ship in a massive aerial bombardment, the Tirpitz capsizing and sinking inside just eleven minutes. 

Nicolas Trudgian's Limited Edition, Sinking The Tirpitz, is signed by Group Captain James Tait, who led the Tirpitz raid, Squadron Leader Tony Iveson - one of 617 Squadrons most prominent pilots, and Leutnant Willi Volsing, a German officer on the Tirpitz.

Published in 2000 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.

Note: the 'Nicolas Trudgian' logo on the bottom right of the image does not appear on the actual print itself.
