New release commemorating D-Day and the battle for Normandy

A forward patrol from the U.S. 101st Airborne Division penetrates a little-used byway in the heart of the Normandy countryside as they scout out the position of German forces shortly after D-Day, June 1944.

Jumping in the dark shortly after midnight on the morning of 6 June 1944, paratroopers of the 101st Airborne faced the hazardous task of helping to secure the right flank of the D-Day invasion zone. If they could do so, the ‘Screaming Eagles’ would be pivotal to the success of Operation Overlord.

Hours later, with their initial assignment successfully completed and reinforced by glider units, this determined unit went on play a major role in holding German forces at bay whilst the amphibious beach landings established their foothold in Normandy.

In his highly detailed piece Jim skilfully manages to contrast the beauty of the Normandy countryside with the tough, well-armed warriors in its midst - a fitting tribute to the legendary Band of Brothers.

Each print is hand numbered and personally signed by artist Jim Dietz.
