Craig Kodera Tiger's Bite

" TIGER'S BITE "
Craig Kodera


850 s/n Limited Edition Print
17 " x 13.25"
Email-price


"The importance of the battle for the Aleutians cannot be underestimated; those islands were the only thing standing between the mainland and the Japanese. I really wanted to do this print because the Aleutians, at that time, saw some colorful flying and colorful people who did a good job against all odds."

"Tiger's Bite" pictures John Chennault's P-40E as it shots down a Rufe in the fall of 1942. The Rufe was the floatplane version of the Zero fighter. It looks ungainly with all its pontoons, but it was a very effective airplane.

John Chennault is the son of Claire Chennault, who commanded the Flying Tigers in China. The P-40E markings were in commemoration of Claire. Both Chennaults, apparently, were great squadron leaders.

"The Aleutian Tigers went at it hot and heavy for over a year. Then, the Japanese left - under the cover of fog. Until then, however, it was just barbaric for those guys so I wanted to recognize them for their efforts."
