Product Description

"THE VETERANS" - by JAMES DIETZ
September 17, 1944 - Membury Airfield -
a fine art print by James Dietz


Gallery Edition - Artist Signed: $175




All across England, they prepare to jump. The “Screaming Eagles,” the “All-American” boys, the British “Red Devils,” soon the troop carrier transports will whisk them away for World War II’s largest airborne invasion to date: Operation Market Garden, a surprise jump to secure vital bridges and roadways in Holland.

Among these units is Easy Company, 506th PIR, seen here. On this morning, the company’s veterans give the new replacements a helping hand. Checking harnesses, uttering encouragements, the veterans’ bravado will settle the rookies’ nerves. Someday, when the new guys look back, they’ll understand: it’s just another day in a company of heroes

The young Lancaster crew arrive at their aircraft in preparation for an operational sortie over Germany. This print is done as a tribute to those unsung crews of Main Force who went towards their thankless task, night after night, in the full knowledge that, statistically, they probably wouldn't survive their tour of 30 ops.
