This wonderful and moving tribute has been issued to commemorate the US Airborne Divisions that fought so gallantly at Normandy in 1944 and the edition has been signed by some of the most eminent veterans to take part in the action, fighting from Normandy to final victory in Germany.
 
For nearly four years, the swastika had flown belligerently over the small town of Sainte Mere Eglise in Normandy. Suddenly, shortly after midnight on the night of 5/6th June 1944, parachutists from the 82nd Airborne Division began landing in and around the town. By 04.30, after a tough fire fight, troopers from the 505th PIR had raised another flag over the town – the Stars and Stripes – and Sainte Mere Eglise had become the first town in Normandy to be liberated by the Allies on D-Day. Sherman tanks landing on nearby Utah Beach with the US VII Corps were soon passing through the newly liberated town on the way to the front. 
 
Every print in this unique edition has been signed by two American veterans who fought with the 82nd Airborne Division on D-Day plus James Megellas, the 82nd’s most highly decorated officer. Comes with a COA.
  • Lieutenant Colonel JAMES ‘MAGGIE’ MEGELLAS
