In late August 1940 another massive wave of German bombers crosses the English coast. Young fighter pilots are hurling themselves into the frenzy of aerial combat. Such actions are to be repeated time and again during this summer-long war of attrition, in an epic duel that will be written into history as the Battle of Britain. A then unknown Hans-Joachim Marseille, of 1./LG2 flying his Bf 109E "White 14" rushes headlong at a squadron of No.19 Spitfires, in an attempt to break up their attack. Marseille will later find fame and glory over the deserts of North Africa, with JG27 where he will ultimately raise his total to 158 confirmed aerial victories. It is here, however, in the battle-scarred summer skies of England that the "Star of Africa" will first start to shine.
* The Giclee on canvas is a 36" x 22" replica of the original, on stretchers. This highly collectable package includes a certificate signed by the three pilots which
carries an original pencil drawing by the artist.
