You’ll almost feel as if you’re there, breaching the Mohne Dam in 1943, celebrating victory with a Spitfire Squadron, or making a first strike on Berlin. The legends of air combat come alive once again in these 30 extraordinary full-color paintings by acclaimed artist Nicolas Trudgian. Here are some of the most important battles and bombers in modern warfare â€” including the Luftwaffe defending the Third Reich and a “Dawn Chorus” of Lightning planes soaring over the countryside, bathed in morning light. Preliminary sketches accompany some, and exciting historical commentaries place the paintings in context.
