O.K. , All. This might be a brain teaser. Years ago (mid 80s? 1984?) there was a painting/ print I saw in a history magazine of a knocked out Sherman. Rusted out and overgrown in a field. Artist was fairly well known ... not a Don Troiani, but .... Under the artwork was a wonderful poem .... about the tank, but honoring all that gave their lives in the liberation of Europe 40 years before. Anybodt remember this? Who painted it? Have access to the poem?

Hello Timothy,
The only one I can think of is this one...

Sorry for the crappy picture its the only one with the poem that I have on file.

Below are some additional photos of what I believe are the actual Sherman that the above picture is based off of.






Hope this helps and good luck! I'm looking forward to seeing this come together
