As the the paratroopers of the101st Airborne tour the newly-liberated “Eagle’s Nest,” flyboys of the 325th Fighter Group, the famed “Checkertail Clan,” buzz past with a wave…The feeling in the air was electric when American troops reached Berchtesgaden, Germany in early May 1945. Once, these Alps were “Flak Alley,” but now the war in Europe is won and this storybook land is again a playground. Nazi Gemany has finally surrendered, and the sound of gunfire has been replaced by the pop of champagne bottles. American pilots can now soar without looking over their shoulders. Victory is here. Originally commissioned as a companion drawing to accompany the print “The Eagle’s Nest” that was issued in 2009. The AP Edition is SOLD OUT at the Publisher but available at Terry James Gallery for a limited time.
