The first new painting of 2017. Completed in January.

“Defense of the Reich”, 18×36”, oil. Copyright Steve Anderson 2017

Geschwaderkommodore Oberstleutnant Wolf-Dietrich Wilcke Leads elements of JG 3 “Udet” Me 109 G6s against the juggernaut of the Mighty 8th Air Force in late 1943. Brought back from the Russian Front earlier in the year for defense of the Reich, JG3 suffered shocking losses in experienced pilots and aircraft during its first 9 months of operations back in the West. Wilcke would be the first Geschwaderkommadore of JG 3 to be killed in action having been brought down by Mustangs on March 23, 1944.

Private collection.
