This time there will be no next time! Artist depicts fluttering Allied flags as waves of bombers speed to Berlin through dark stormy skies. Title reflects the fact that in World War I Germany surrendered before it could be occupied. This gave rise to the infamous ‘stab in the back’ theory that held that politicians had double crossed the army, which could have won the war had they been given the chance. During World War II pilots dubbed Berlin Big B as it was so heavily defended by flak high losses were inevitable. Very rare. 30×40 near mint, conservation backed.
