Released as a pair with A WELCOME RETURN, Anthony Saunders' new painting, CLASH OF EAGLES, features P-51 Mustangs of the 20th Fighter Group, flying out of Kings Cliffe to engage Me109’s from JG77 in a furiously contested dogfight.

Each print has been signed by the following P-51 Ace and veteran Luftwaffe pilot:
