Churchills Advance by Nicolas Trudgian

CHURCHILLS ADVANCE
By
Nicolas Trudgian

In the snowy hills and forests of the Ardennes, in January 1945, the German army’s last
great thrust in the West comes to nothing as a lack of fuel and ammunition bring even the
mightiest of tanks to a cold demise. With the roads swept clear of abandoned armour the
Allies head east towards the German heartland and final victory.

The Dangerous Road to Bastogne by Nicolas Trudgian

THE DANGEROUS ROAD TO BASTOGNE
By
Nicolas Trudgian

On a lonely road, deep among the snowy hills of the Ardennes, American troops gaze in
awe at a German ‘King Tiger’ tank. Despite its apparently vast superiority over Allied
armour, the mighty tank has been abandoned simply through lack of fuel in the latter
stages of the Battle of the Bulge, January 1945.

The print is signed by:
Art Staymates – Served in the 26th Infantry division and was in the first wave to land on the D-Day invasion, wounded
twice and received a Battlefield commission he fought from the D-Day Beaches all the way up into Germany, his final posting
of the war was guarding the top twelve criminals at the Nuremberg trials

Stapme's Final Attack by Nicolas Trudgian

STAPME’S FINAL ATTACK
by
Nicolas Trudgian

On December 23rd 1944, during the Battle of the Bulge, Squadron Leader
Basil  ‘Stapme'  Stapleton  was flying his Hawker Typhoon of No.247 Squadron on an
offensive patrol from his base at Eindhoven. Behind enemy lines, he spotted a train and
pressed home a determined attack with rockets and cannon fire. Unluckily, as the boiler of
the locomotive violently exploded, shrapnel damaged his aircraft and Stapme had to make
a crash-landing, spending the rest of the war as a prisoner.

Signed by:
Gerald Stapleton – served with 603 Squadron in the Battle of Britain and commanded 247 Squadron flying Typhoons.

The Battle for Asch by Nicolas Trudgian

THE BATTLE FOR ASCH 
By 
Nicolas Trudgian

Inspired by the personal account of Major Alden Rigby of the 487th FS, 352nd Fighter Group,
his Mustang is depicted during the epic battle of Asch airfield in Belgium at dawn on the 1st January 1945.
The Luftwaffe's 'Operation Bodenplatte, the simultaneous attacks of airfields in the Low Countries,
came as such a surprise that few of the allied units could respond in time.
 The 487th Fighter Squadron at Asch were an exception and twelve P51s managed to scramble and put up a magnificent flight. 
Before Alden had fully retracted his landing gear he shot down one of the enemy FW190's which was in pursuit of a fellow Mustang.
In the following 25 minutes of furious combat Alden shot down a further three of the raiders, becoming an Ace in  the process,
and for this action he later received the Silver Star. In total, the Mustangs destroyed 24 of the attacking aircraft
and the 487th FS was awarded a Distinguished Unit Citation.
