 Berlin, Germany, 24th March 1944.  While taking part in what was to be the last major RAF bombing raid on the German capital, Avro Lancaster AS-C of 166 Squadron was unlucky to have both port engines hit by flak.  As the crew prepared to bale out, the aircraft again came under fire, this time by an enemy nightfighter.  Knocked unconscious by one of the fighters shells, mid gunner Sgt. W.H. Burnell was trapped in the doomed bomber as it fell to the ground from 25,000 ft.  Unbelievably he survived and apart from bruising his only injury was a gashed head from the stray shell.

 Borisov, Russia, 2nd July 1941.  The battle for Minsk lasted 12 days, when it ended 300,000 soviet troops had been taken prisoner.  In the air fierce battles were fought to smash an escape route to the citys defenders.  It was during this chaos that Gerd Barkhorn scored his first victory against a Soviet DB-3 bomber. He had flown 120 missions throughout the Battle of Britain, and only succeeded in being shot down himself.  It was only in Russia that his career really took off.  By the end of the war he was credited with 301 victories in 1104 missions.

NEW DAVID PENTLAND TANK ART BOOK 

 

Century of Tanks 1916 -2016 is now available!

The book with the 6 postcards.

2016 marks the first centenary of the Tank and to commemorate this anniversary renowned military artist David Pentland has drawn from his vast archives of paintings and drawings to illustrate the evolution of this powerful and deadly weapon in combat over the last hundred years. For the purposes of this book the definition of a tank has been limited to that of a fully tracked armoured vehicle, which usually carries a turret armed with a main gun. Omitted therefore, are assault guns, self-propelled anti-tank and artillery vehicles which may be returned to in a future volume. 

This 112-page limited edition hardback book is approximately 11 inches x 8.5 inches in size and comprises around 50 of David's tank artworks, with some brand new pieces included.  Each book is signed by David Pentland.

LATEST DAVID PENTLAND RELEASES

 Ardennes, Belgium 10th May 1940. Belgian infantry manning a Hochkiss machine gun await the advancing German army. The Hochkiss M1914 although outdated by 1940 was still a heavy and rock-steady combination of gun and tripod, the world's first efficient air-cooled machine gun, known for its reliability and accuracy.

Defending the Homeland by David Pentland.
 France, 23rd May 1940. The advance guard of Pz38t tanks, 1st Panzer Division enter the little village of Hames-Boucres, on the road to Calais.

The Road to Calais by David Pentland.
 Northern France, 1st June 1940. Beleaguered troops of the BEF, fight a delaying action against the German encirclement of the doomed town.

Rearguard at Dunkirk by David Pentland.
 Northern France, 22nd May 1940. Sdkfz 222 light armoured cars of the SS Leibstandarte Regiment drive along French lanes on a reconnaissance patrol for the forces of General Heinz Guderian on their advance towards the French coast.

Wittmann on Patrol by David Pentland.

 May 1940. At the forefront of the German panzer divisions and leading the advances into France were the Kradschutzen Truppen or motorcycle troops. Although mainly acting in the reconnaissance role they also had the firepower to hold objectives until reinforced.

Motorcycle Attack by David Pentland.
 May 1940. Designed by Renault to replace the ageing FT-17 in the light infantry tank support role, as such it was relatively heavily armoured and was armed with a low velocity 37mm gun. Like all French tanks of this time it used a single man turret, which put the commander/gunner under considerable pressure in combat. The R.35 entered service with the French army in 1935, and in 1940 it was upgraded to the R-40. In all 900 Renault tanks were in service when the Germans invaded.

De Gaulle's Defenders by David Pentland.
 France, 15th-17th May 1940. The French offensive at Stonne was of vital importance following the German capture of Sedan. The French could use it as a base from which to launch long-term attacks on the enemy bridgeheads. In this innocuous town, a vicious two-day battle took place in which the Germans came face to face with the premier French tank, the Char B-Bis for the only time. One of these tanks, commanded by Pierre Billotte, proved invulnerable to German anti-tank fire and took 140 hits, and knocked out 13 German tanks. The town changed hands 17 times but ultimately the French failed to hold it.

Char B at Stonne by David Pentland.
DP0261. Last Stand at Calais by David Pentland. France, 23rd May 1940. British Cruiser Mark IA CS (A9) tanks and Bren Carriers of A squadron, 3RTR, 1st Armoured Division, line the road south of Calais, prior to being sent south to secure the bridges on the St. Omer canal. The British column of tanks failed to reach its objective, encountering the advance guard of 1st Panzer Division near the little village of Hames-Boucres, and after an inconclusive afternoon battle fell back towards Calais in the early evening.
