Overview

As much a national hero as Wellington, Nelson or Montgomery, the Supermarine Spitfire has become the most recognizable icon of World War II for several generations of Britons. From the throaty growl of its Rolls-Royce Merlin or Griffon, to its beautifully tapered elliptical wings, the Spitfire is a true aeronautical thoroughbred. Regarded by many as the savior of the Sceptered Isle "in its darkest hour", the Spitfire is without a doubt the most famous combat aircraft the world has ever seen. This lavishly illustrated volume is a tribute to this magnificent fighter and the heroic "few" who flew the Spitfire during the Battle of Britain.
