RECORDING THE HISTORY OF EASY COMPANY, AND THE MEN OF THE AIRBORNE DIVISIONS. Specially commissioned by the Military Gallery to accompany the outstanding new limited edition book, Easy Co. 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment – In Photographs, Chris Collingwood has painted yet another outstanding masterpiece that cements his reputation as one of the world’s foremost military portrait painters. His portrayal of Major Dick Winters and the men of Easy Company, 101st Airborne Division, as they take up a holding position in the Normandy town of Carentan on 14 June 1944, eight days after their dramatic parachute drop into Normandy on D-Day, brings these heroic warriors to life with stunning realism.
