Rocket Firing Typhoons At The Falaise Gap by Frank Wootton

Free shipping


One of Frank Wootton's most iconic images featuring the Hawker Typhoon in Normandy. Tasked with attacking enemy transport, troop concentrations and especially Tanks, the Typhoons caught the retreating Germans at the 'Falaise Gap'. The pilots attacked everything that moved with cannons, rockets and bombs.

In Frank Wootton's superb picture German tanks are still trying to escape the hell of the 'Gap' as smashed Panther tanks lie abandoned by the side of the road. More 'cab ranks' of Typhoons are overhead.
