Towards the Home Fires by Robert Taylor


Towards the Home Fires by Robert Taylor features P-51 Mustangs of the 434th Fighter Squadron.

As the New Year of 1945 dawned, the snow had already spread to blanket the southern half of England. The festivities of Christmas had passed and the relentless pounding of German cities and industrial targets continued unabated. On every front Hitler’s once-fabled armies were in full retreat. The endgame was now in play. Recalling that final harsh winter of the war Robert has painted one of the finest scenes of his illustrious career in a stunning tribute to Robin Olds, one of the legendary Aces who took part in the great aerial assault launched on Germany by the US Eighth Air Force. 

With dusk approaching, Robin Olds, flying his P-51K Scat VI, leads a flight of Mustangs of the 434th Fighter Squadron, 479th Fighter Group low over the historic estuary town of Maldon in Essex as they head home to their base at Wattisham, 14 February 1945. The mission saw Olds add three more German fighters to his tally south of Berlin, making him one of the foremost Aces of the unit. 

Each print in Robert Taylor's Limited Edition, Towards the Home Fires, is signed by a highly distinguished P-51 fighter pilot who flew with Robin Olds:
Lieutenant Colonel WALTER M. DRAKE   479th FG / 1 victory.
