Messerschmitt Bf 109’s of II./JG53 undergo routine maintenance at Charleville-Mézières, Northern France, during the summer of 1940. With the Battle of Britain at its height the German fighters will soon be back in action over the Channel and southern England.

The book: The Art of Combat
This superb hard back, case-bound first edition book features a comprehensive selection of Richard Taylor's aviation and military paintings, along with specially commissioned pencil work. Its hardly surprising that Richard Taylor became a professional artist. His father is Robert Taylor, regarded as the finest aviation and maritime painter of his generation. For the past few years, however, Richard has been quietly carving out his own niche in the world of aviation and military art and is seen as one of the industry's most exciting artists.

This beautifully illustrated book contains more than 30 of Richard's air combat and military paintings, which have been successfully published as limited edition prints by the Military Gallery, together with a veritable feast of new drawings, many of which are seen here for the first time. Most of the paintings have a dedicated chapter to themselves in which the artist describes the history behind the images, and how each painting came into existence. The impressive array of work contained within these pages will delight the thousands of collectors around the world who share a passion for classic warbirds of former times, and a love of fine aviation and military art as exemplified by the talent of Richard Taylor.

Foreword by Brigadier General ROBERT CARDENAS USAF (Ret.)

Colour plates: 63 colour images plus many black and white drawings.
