Bridge Busters by Anthony Saunders features P-47s of the 78th FG during the D-Day invasion. With orders to destroy, delay or disrupt enemy forces en-route to the Normandy battle area, P-47 Thunderbolts from the 78th Fighter Group launch a blistering high-speed, low-level attack, on a German freight train in occupied northern France, June 1944. Desperately attempting to transport vital supplies to the front by daylight, it has fallen prey to the cannons and bombs of the eagle-eyed Thunderbolt pilots. In the weeks following D-Day, the pilots of the 78th FG would fly almost continuous missions to seek out and eliminate any German vehicles, positions and forces they could find; and cause chaos and mayhem to the enemy's lines of communication ahead of the advancing Allied forces. Each edition is signed by the artist Anthony Saunders and two distinguished USAAF P-47 fighter pilots, who both flew interdiction missions in P-47s after D-Day: Captain WAYNE COLEMAN First Lieutenant SAMUEL ‘BUZZARD’ LUTZ 400 Limited Editions 25 Artist Proof Editions Overall Size: 26 x 20 inches
