A 16" x 20" full-color art print by author/historian/illustrator DON HOLLWAY
October 29th, 1940: With zero victories to his credit, 22-year old Leutnant Gerhard Barkhorn nurses his stricken Messerschmitt Me-109E from Dungeness toward the French coast. A 615 Sqn. RAF Hurricane Mk.I arrives to finish him off. Barkhorn has released his canopy and will bail out into the English Channel, narrowly escaping capture by British motor torpedo boats. The Allies’ loss, however, is the Luftwaffe’s gain. From this humble start, “Gerd” Barkhorn will become the second-highest-scoring fighter pilot of all time, with 301 victories and the Knight’s Cross of the Iron Cross with Oak Leaves and Swords.
