First Strike on Berlin by Nicolas Trudgian. The first successful daylight raid on Berlin. Nicolas Trudgians painting relives the fearsome aerial combat on March 6, 1944, as B-17 Flying Fortresses of the 100th B.G. are attacked. Screaming in head-on, Fw190s of II./JG I charge into the bomber stream. With throttles wide open, 56th Fighter Group P-47 Thunderbolts come hurtling down to intercept. B-17 gunners are working overtime, the air is full of cordite, smoke, jagged pieces of flying metal and hot lead. We are in the midst of one of the fiercest aerial battles of the war. Each edition is signed and numbered by the artist along with a P-47 Ace who flew escort missions to Berlin and two pilots from the "Bloody 100th", who flew their B-17s to Berlin on March 6, 1944; Colonel MORTON MAGOFFIN Captain C.B.
