The Battle of Britain was one of the most famous air battles in the history of warfare, one filled with ruthless organisation, brilliant control, and command. At its heart is one particular figure, a legend ever since—the RAF fighter pilot—as well as one particular plane, a piece of machinery that has almost mythic historical glamour: the Supermarine Spitfire. This engaging volume reintroduces the few that flew in the Battle of Britain and includes interviews with many of the surviving veteran Spitfire pilots. Fully illustrated with 16 pages of photographs and contemporary archive material, it provides a vivid portrait of the fighter boys and their finest hour, their planes, and Fighter Command.
