EAGLES ON THE RAMPAGE

Ace of Aces Series Part II

by Robert Taylor

Dominating the skies over Germany, P51's of the 4th Fighter Group - The Eagles - sweep across the cloud tops, their pilots scanning the distant horizon for any signs of the Luftwaffe. They are ready for trouble should the enemy decide to chance their luck . . .

 The greatness of the Mustang is beyond doubt; it was the fighter pilot's

ultimate machine. Tough, hard-hitting, it handled beautifully and - once the

mighty Merlin engine had been included - possessed a performance unrivalled by any single piston-engined fighter of World War II.

Formed in September 1942 from the RAF Eagle Squadrons, the Fourth Fighter Group was the oldest fighter unit in the Eighth Air Force, and one of the most distinguished; Under the command of Don Bleakeslee, described as probably the best fighter leader of the war', the combined air and ground victories notched up by ' The Eagles ' during World War II surpassed any other fighter group.

It is fitting therefore that Robert Taylor has chosen the Fourth Fighter Group for his classic new painting Eagles on the Rampage to represent all the pilots who flew P51s with the USAAF. Following on from the great success of Roberts previous piece Horrido! which was a tribute to the Luftwaffe Aces of WWII - each print in this outstanding edition is signed by some of the most famous Mustang pilots that flew in the European Theatre during World War II. Every signatory in the edition has reached Ace status, creating a historic new collectors' edition which may never be surpassed.
