Description The Falaise Pocket or Battle of the Falaise Pocket (1221 August 1944) was the decisive engagement of the Battle of Normandy in the Second World War. A pocket was formed around Falaise, Calvados in which Army Group B, with the German 7th Army and the Fifth Panzer Army (formerly Panzergruppe West) were encircled by the Western Allies. The battle resulted in the destruction of most of Army Group B west of the River Seine, which opened the way to Paris and the German border for the Allied armies.
Michael Colclough, Adelaide Member Since November 2014 Artist Statement This artwork is relatively new in the art world, a new kind of art. As opposed to conventional painting or photography, digital art allows a person to render any image on to any scenery, thereby creating a whole new class of artists. What it also allows those of us who are historians, is to create photos of military history like they were just taken, instead of some historical grainy black and white photo. While these artistic creations may not be considered 'real' art or genuine photography, it is undeniable that this kind of art is here to stay. It has been referred to as 'Digiart'.
I am one of those Digital Artists. I do military art.
