The success of the Royal Canadian Air Force's No 126 Wing began before the D-Day landings on 6 June 1944, but its phenomenal performance after the Normandy invasion has no simple explanation. True, it profited from being in all the right places at all the right moments during the war - D-Day and the breakout, Falaise Gap, Operation Market Garden, the winter offensive in the Ardennes and the crossing of the Rhine into Germany. But other wings with 2nd TAP participated in the same operations without achieving nearly the same success as No 126. This book examines the wing's exploits in each of these major operations highlighting the effectiveness of the Spitfire in the fighter-bomber role, as well as in its more familiar air superiority mission. Finally, the exploits of the pilots who 'made ace' with the wing are fully detailed.
