Spitfire: the History of a Legend

Author(s): Mike Lepine


It was during the Battle of Britain in 1940 that the Spitfire became an enduring legend and a symbol of the British fighting spirit, partnering with the Hawker Hurricane to defeat the might of Hitler's Luftwaffe and prevent invasion. Highly illustrated with the pick of historic photographs, Spitfire The History of a Legend covers all the significant Marks developed during the Spitfire's operational service, explaining how the aircraft evolved to meet the challenges presented by the war's changing requirements and by the threat of new generations of Luftwaffe fighters.
