Not Without a Fight - by Ardell Bourgeois
On March 23, 1944, B-17 Flying Fortress 'Paper Doll'
and her crew
were on their eleventh mission.
After taking heavy damage she dropped out of formation to be set upon by six Bf-109s.
Shooting down one of their tormentors, the crew bailed out,
all ten surviving 13 months in P.O.W. camps.
30 x 20 inches Oil on Canvas
