STRUGGLE FOR SUPREMACY
JANUARY 1945: If the Allies had air superiority, nobody had told the determined pilots of the Luftwaffe, because the skies over Germany were both dangerous and deadly.
Robert’s iconic scene depicts a dramatic clash between the USAAF and the Luftwaffe high over the Rhineland. P-51 Mustangs of the 357th Fighter Group, escorting a heavy bomber raid deep into enemy territory, have engaged a strong force of Me109s and a massive dog-fight has developed. Captain Robert Foy of 363rd Squadron engages one of the Me109s in a daring head-on pass whilst P-47 Thunderbolts of 56th Fighter Group climb to give support.
Four distinguished 8th Air Force Aces join three high scoring Luftwaffe Aces to authenticate Robert Taylor's portrayal of the battle for air supremacy in the closing months of World War II.
