LIMITED EDITION PRINT by Nicolas Trudgian

In the closing months of the war, the Allies on the Western and Eastern Fronts forced the Germans back towards their homeland. The Luftwaffe, despite dreadful odds, continued to fight with great tenacity.
 
The fighter pilots were mostly young and barely trained, but were led by the few surviving more experienced 'experten' pilots and were often fortunate in the quality of the aircraft they flew. Most numerous and feared by the Allies was Fw190D-9, or 'Dora' as it became known. It was more than a match for all Allied fighters including the magnificent P51D Mustang. This fact was pressed home on the 19th March 1945 when Mustangs of the illustrious 78th Fighter Group lost four of their aircraft to the Doras of IV/JG26.
 
The Mustang pilots had been flying a patrol over Germany from their base at Duxford in England and had first encountered Me109K fighters of IV/JG27. In the frenzied dogfight that ensued, the Mustangs downed twelve of the Messerschmitts. However, they then had the misfortune to run into the path of the Doras of JG26 led by the formidable Oberleutant Hans Dortenmann in his distinctive yellow-tailed 'Black 1'. Dortenmann shot down two of the four Mustangs and a further two were also lost before the 78th could make for home. It was a stark reminder of the supremacy of the D-9 and the threat the Luftwaffe still posed.
 
Dortenmann continued to lead his young pilots to the end of the war by which time his total of victories in the D-9 had risen to eighteen thereby making him the top scoring 'Dora' Ace of the war.
