BRIDGE BUSTERS - D-DAY PORTFOLIO


CHANNEL STORM

Anthony’s atmospheric painting depicts a definitive moment in late August 1940 as the Mk.I Spitfires of 610 Squadron, one of the units to bear the full brunt of the Luftwaffe’s attacks, scramble away from their base at Biggin Hill towards the Channel where yet another incoming Luftwaffe formation has been spotted. Combining great skill with thoughtful insight, Anthony beautifully portrays the elegant fighters, glinting in sunlight, racing towards the storm clouds gathering on the horizon. The peaceful harvest taking place in the fields below is in stark contrast to the perils that lie ahead.
 

 

CHECKING OUT

In this pair of eye-catching pieces, Anthony Saunders has chosen P-51s of the Mighty Eighth’s 352nd Fighter Group to represent all those who flew Mustangs so heroically with the US 8th Air Force from England during WWII. In the first, Checking Out, the bad weather that has dogged the past few days is thankfully clearing, allowing the Group to begin their dispersal from Bodney to take part in an escort mission in early 1945. In the second, Beyond the Storm, the bad weather is, however, once again closing in as Captain Ray Littge, flying his P-51D Miss Helen, leads the 487th Fighter Squadron back home over the familiar Suffolk coastline in April 1945.

CLASH OF EAGLES

Released as a pair with A WELCOME RETURN, Anthony Saunders' new painting, CLASH OF EAGLES, features P-51 Mustangs of the 20th Fighter Group, flying out of Kings Cliffe to engage Me109’s from JG77 in a furiously contested dogfight. Below them a formation of B-17’s from the 379th Bomb Group fly through the chaos, doggedly maintaining their course, as they head on to attack the huge synthetic oil refinery at Meresburg, southern Germany, on 11 September 1944. So vital was this refinery to the Nazi war machine that it became one of the most heavily defended targets in Germany, the air defences even surpassing those of Berlin.

DAMBUSTERS


DAWN BREAKERS - A D-DAY PORTFOLIO

Halifaxes of 76 Sqn head north over Gold Beach towards England after attacking German gun batteries behind the landing zones in the early hours of D-Day. Escorted by P-51 Mustangs from the 359th Fighter Group they witness the unforgettable sight unfolding below them in the light of dawn, as a vast flotilla of landing craft heads toward the Normandy shore.
 

 

DAY OF INFAMY

On the morning of Sunday 7 December 1941 the Japanese launched their infamous attack on Pearl Harbor. Surprise was complete; within a few terrifying minutes, bombs and torpedoes had damaged or destroyed much of the US Pacific Fleet peacefully at anchor, and almost all of the fighters on the ground. But as an Aichi D-3A bomber targets the battleship California, a lone P-40 has managed to get airborne in the chaos to engage the enemy.
