Taking out the bridges that crossed the River Kwai Noi was a priority for the United States as it had been built off the backs of 16,000 prisoners of war. The men that had died making the “Death Railway” were Dutch, Australian, Austrian, and British, and had been ultimately used to create a supply route across Japan. Craig Kodera captures this moment in history showing a B-25 doing a fly by over the bridge as bombs are being unloaded, leaving behind a wake of destruction. This fine art print is signed by four of the crew members, in addition to Artist Craig Kodera. This piece of fine art is the perfect addition to any WWII collection.
This print has been SOLD OUT for years and is only available as a Secondary Market offering.
