HELL HAWKS OVER UTAH – Double Remarque (Secondary Market Print)
by Robert Taylor
ROBERT TAYLOR’S OUTSTANDING EDITION TO COMMEMORATE THE 70TH ANNIVERSARY OF D-DAY
As elements of the US VII Corps storm ashore on Utah beach below, P-47D Thunderbolts from the 365th Fighter Group, US Ninth Air Force – The Hell Hawks – overfly the Normandy bridgehead on the morning of D-Day, 6 June 1944. Flying from their base in southern England, the mighty Hell Hawks head inland to attack and successfully suppress German positions in support of the American advance.
Robert Taylor’s outstanding Masterwork, specially commissioned to commemorate the 70th Anniversary of D-Day and the battle for Normandy, pays tribute to the roughnecks of the 365th Fighter Group as they cross Utah Beach on the morning of 6 June 1944. They will shortly be in action taking out German armored units resisting the advance of the US First Army from the invasion beaches.
Overall print size: 301/2 x 24 inches
