KNIGHTS MOVE - REMARQUE COPY
One of Robert's series of superb maritime subjects featruring the great capitol ships of World War 2 'Knights Move' features the mighty Battleship 'Tirpitz'. Although she spent most of her war in Norwegian waters, the mere threat of Tirpitz putting to sea could cause choas within the Admiralty. Indeed, it was one such false alarm that caused the virtual destruction of the Arctic Convoy PQ17.
Robert has painted a magnificent scene as Tirpitz under the command of Admiral Schniewind, in company with the heavy cruisers Scheer and Hipper, set out during 'Operation Rosselsprung'. The Me109's of JG5 'Eismeer' provide aerial escort whilst the magnificent mountains of Norway provide the awesome background.
