"ALMOST HOME" by GIL COHEN
Limited Edition Print: $175
A tribute to the pilots & crewmen who flew and fought
aboard the B-17 "Flying Fortress" in WW II
Just a year or two earlier, the bomber boys could be found in the classroom, on the job, or at the ballpark. Now, aboard B-17s, they bomb the German war machine and targets like Schweinfurt, Regensburg, Bremen, and Berlin.
On today’s mission, they shivered as frost covered their windshields. They gritted their teeth through skies blackened by flak and fighters. They fought, white-knuckled, until the friendly coastline appeared. Intense relief now shows on the crew’s beaming faces. One crewman may be wounded, an engine may be out, but they are almost home.
