Throughout the early morning of 6 June 1944 the men of the US 29th Infantry Division had fought their way yard by yard across the bloody shingle of Omaha Beach but the strong German opposition was unexpected. It was the same on most sectors of bloody Omaha beach that morning. Showing unparalleled levels of bravery and determination the US infantrymen finally prevailed and within days the scene on the beach was a hive of activity as Mulberry A, one of two giant artificial harbours that had been towed across the Channel, was erected off this once-deadly beach.
Anthony Saunders has crafted an intensely graphic new painting that depicts a pair of RAF Typhoons from 245 Sqn over the American Mulberry. They race back to their base in Hampshire to re-fuel and re-arm after delivering a blistering rocket attack on German positions behind the ever widening Normandy beachhead.
