Now is your chance to own a one-of-a-kind art masterpiece by famed painter John D. Shaw, depicting the most revered act of chivalry in wartime: Franz Stigler escorting the B-17 "Ye Olde Pub" out of Germany!
Released as a print in early 2013, "In the Presence of My Enemy" sold out within the year to fans of the international bestselling book, "A Higher Call" by Adam Makos, Valor Studios' publisher.
Now, with "A Higher Call" released in the UK, France, Germany, Hungary, and Poland, the story of Franz Stigler and Charlie Brown is becoming more popular than ever.
This painting is sold framed, signed on the back by 18 decorated veterans of the air war in Europe, including two German pilots.
This original oil painting is on board, a method used by many of the old masters since it is more resilient than canvas.
