Nockholds Back Them Up! 1942. Sensational image illustrates the devastating impact of the British heavy Bomber campaign. Droning high above the conflagration they have ignited, a formation of “Stirling” heavy bombers, Britain’s first four engine bomber, is pictured blasting the German port city of Lubeck. Its coastal location made it easier for navigators to find than cities in Germany’s interior. 30×20 near mint, conservation backed.
