1.PREY FOR MERCY, Franz Stigler's fatefull 1943 encounter with mortally stricken B-17 Ye Old Pub., an Artist Proof print by John D. Shaw $425

The Story Begins… An American B-17 crew was certain they’’’’d not live to see Christmas 1943… Mortally wounded and easy prey for Franz Stigler, whose ambitions to avenge the brother he’’’’d lost at the war’’’’s opening had earned him glory as an ace many times over - A 3rd kill in such a short period of time would certainly win him the coveted Knight’’’’s Cross. The prospect was so easy… But upon reaching his helpless foe, would he claim the prize? Or would his conscience demand that he answer a Higher Call? In one of the most inspiring stories to spring from the horrors of World War II, this honorable man’’’’s decision to show mercy to his enemy would one day yield rewards far greater than any his country could bestow- the lives of many men & their grandchildren, and friendship with a one-time foe which would equal that of his own brother. Now, three quarters of a century later, artist John D. Shaw recreates another visual snapshot from this remarkable incident in history...
