At dusk on a cold December day during WWII a German fighter pilot was taking a great risk. He had seen the faces of the wounded crewmen and decided to spare them and escort the damaged B-17 out of Germany. If a civilian or soldier on the ground reported him, the fighter pilot would face a firing squad. In the eyes of his country during the war, he was a traitor. But to the defenseless American crew, he was their guardian. Now, they had hopes of reaching England again, thanks to the mysterious German ace who held his fire. One day, the crew would know his name, Franz Stigler. In 1990, they invited Franz to their bomb group reunion where they introduced their families to the man who gave them the greatest gift, the chance to live. Print includes a Certificate of Authenticity with “History Behind the Art” signed by the artist Nick Trudgian. Print measures about 32” x 22.5”.
