NEW RELEASE… DUTY OF THE DAY by Robert Taylor

A tribute one of the foremost ground-attack aircraft ever to take to the skies! 

The dark days following the fall of France had seen a triumphant German advance in the west stemmed and ultimately halted by the RAF in the Battle of Britain. As Hitler turned his eyes and ambitions east towards Russia, military planners in Britain soon began to plan for the day when an Allied cross-Channel invasion would herald their return to France and mainland Europe. In June 1943 a new air force was established to provide and co- ordinate air support to the Army in preparation for that invasion, for the land operations that would follow, and the inevitable ground offensives by the British and Canadian Armies as they drove west in the battles to defeat Germany.
