KURSK - CLASH OF STEEL
Double Remarque 18 Signature Edition
Nick's follow up to his superb 'Battle of Kursk', this print is extremely popular with collectors of both aviation and Armour - the Me109G's of JG52 support the II/SS Panzer Corps assault on the southern portion of the Kursk Salient. Tigers of the 2nd SS Panzer Division 'Das Reich' move forward to engage Soviet armour as Yak fighters attempt to intervene. A Henschel 129 anti-tank aircraft is also adding it's firepower against Soviet armour.

To further enhance the significance of this Print Nicolas Trudgian has produced a superlative DOUBLE REMARQUE!
The First shows a Soviet La5N fighter flying low over the Kursk Battlefield - the La5 was able to meet German fighters on equal terms and was flown during the Kursk Battle by the eventual top-scoring Allied Ace - Ivan Kozhedub!
The Second depicts a Luftwaffe Hs129B ground-attack aircraft - this type was particularly effective at Kursk and even prevented a Soviet counter-attack from being successful at Orel!
The Print measures 34 x 23.5 Inches
A fantastic Print for serious Nick Trudgian Collectors!
