The Battle of Britain, 1940, was one of the most famous air battles in the history of warfare and it is a story of ruthless organisation, brilliant control and command. But at its heart is one particular figure, a legend ever since – the RAF fighter pilot. And one particular plane – a piece of machinery that has almost mythic historical glamour – the Supermarine Spitfire.
Spitfire Ace reintroduces the few that flew in the Battle of Britain and includes interviews with many of the surviving veteran Spitfire pilots. Combined with a historical narrative of the events surrounding the Battle of Britain, you will learn for the first time what it was really like to fly a Spitfire and to experience combat flying at its most visceral.
Fully illustrated with 16 pages of photographs and contemporary archive material, Spitfire Ace provides a vivid portrait of the fighter boys and their finest hour, their planes (including Spitfires, Hurricanes and Messerchmitts) and Fighter Command – RAF versus the Luftwaffe.
Review: Very informative, enlightening and entertaining and covering the war time stories of a number of Spitfire pilots. Once started it’s a difficult to put this book down!
