"THE EAGLE'S NEST" by JOHN SHAW


Rare Secondary Market Framed Print: $1,995




May 7, 1945…With Goering’s champagne and Bavarian beer, the veterans of “Easy” Company celebrate the end of World War II in Europe. Fate could write no better fate for the paratroopers who jumped into the darkness of Normandy, slugged through the mud of Holland, and froze in the woods of Bastogne. Now, in Berchtesgaden’s storybook Alps, P-51 Mustangs of the “checkertail clan” cap the party as the ‘Band of Brothers’ enjoy the spoils of war, the beauty of peace, and a toast to the heroes who fell along the way.

The painting The Eagle’s Nest was completed in 2008, and is the 3rd “Band of Brothers” painting in Shaw’s series honoring the men of Easy Company. This painting features likenesses of a number of the actual Band of Brothers. From left to right at table: Sgt.Earl McClung, Sgt. Bull Randleman, Sgt. Shifty Powers, Lt. Ed Shames, unknown, PFC “Babe” Heffron, Sgt. Rod Strohl, Sgt. Floyd Talbert. Standing: Maj. Dick Winters, Alton Moore, unknown, Capt. Ron Speirs, Lt. Jack Foley. In back seat of car: PFC Clancy Lyall (with German hat) and above him, Frank Perconte. The two P-51s approaching are of the 325th “checkertail clan”, the specific aircraft “Alp Scalper”, flown by 10-victory pilot Gerry Edwards, and “King Richard VI”, flown by Ron Dove.
