DHM6108AP. Day Drop - Stick 21 by Robert Taylor. <p> At 23.45 on the night of 5 June 1944, the 101st Airborne's most legendary unit of combat paratroopers - the notorious 'Filthy Thirteen' - jumped into France near the village of Sainte Mere Eglise, in the final hours before the D-Day landings.  They were the Screaming Eagles' most notorious unit, a small bunch of raw, tough, ruthless young men.  Hard drinking and savage fighting - and that was only in training - with scant regard for authority.  And if the reputation of this unique bunch of renegades within the ranks of the 101st was formidable, for the Germans it became one of sheer terror.  Officially they were the First Demolition Squadron, HQ Company, 506th PIR, 101st Airborne.  Unofficially they were the 'Filthy Thirteen'.  Superbly crafted in his unique blend of pencil and paint on tinted paper, Robert Taylor's classic new Master Drawing captures the moment on the night of 5 June 1944 when the 101st Airborne's legendary squad of elite paratroopers jump into battle in the vital hours before the D-Day landings commence.  The pilots of the 440th Troop Carrier Group struggle to keep their Dakotas level as deadly flak pummels the formation. <b><p>Signed by <a href=signature.php?Signature=2507>Sergeant Jake McNiece</a><br>and<br><a href=signature.php?Signature=2508>Private 1st Class Jack Wormer</a>. <p>Limited edition of 25 artist proofs.  <p> Paper size 27 inches x 20 inches (69cm x 51cm)
