Pathway to the Ruhr by Anthony Saunders - Dambusters
ANNOUNCING THE FINAL RELEASE IN THE 70th ANNIVERSARY DAMBUSTERS SERIES
With silver moonlight glinting on the wave tops below, Guy Gibson leads the first wave of Lancasters low across the North Sea to avoid enemy detection, on the night of 16/17 May 1943. In formation with Mick Martin on his port side and Hoppy Hopgood to starboard, Gibson heads towards the Dutch Coast and the Ruhr valley beyond - their mission, the destruction of the Mohne and Eder Dams.
In one of the finest paintings of his career, leading aviation artist Anthony Saunders has completed one of the most compelling Dambuster images of recent years.
