Undetected the battlecruisers Scharnhorst and Gneisenau (together with the cruiser Prinz Eugen and supporting vessels) had escaped from the French port of Brest and were making an audacious dash in broad daylight, under the noses of the enemy, to the safety of the Elbe Estuary. But first they must sail through the Straits of Dover - one of the narrowest and most heavily defended straits in the world. Everything depended on surprise and air cover from Me109 fighters. Given the job of providing that air cover was one of Hitler's youngest Generals (Adolf Galland) who through diligent planning and daring tactics ensured the operation was a complete success.Originally created as the first in the famous Galland Trilogy The Channel Dash became one of the most collectible Me109 limited editions ever published by the Military Gallery.
