Rare Limited Edition by Nicolas Trudgian, Typhoons at Falaise, featuring RAF Typhoons of 198 Squadron. It is August 1944, barely two months since the Allies landed their first troops on the beaches of Normandy. Already the German Panzer Divisions are in full retreat, and it is critical to halt them before they can regroup. Caught in the Gap at Falaise, the battle was to be decisive. Flying throughout a continuous onslaught, rocket-firing Typhoons kept up their attacks on the trapped armoured divisions from dawn to dusk. The effect was devastating: at the end of the tenth day of battle the 100,000 strong German force was decimated. Nicolas Trudgian captures this historic battle in dramatic fashion. Typhoons of 198 Squadron RAF, deliver their deadly rocket and cannon fire, a tank column has been brought to a standstill, their reign of terror now almost at its end. All editions are signed by the artist along with five distinguished Typhoon pilots who flew missions on D-Day and the Battle of Normandy; Flight Lieutenant Roy Crane Flight Lieutenant John Golley Flight Lieutenant Ron Grant Flight Lieutenant Derek Lovell Squadron Leader H.G.
