Description

The Spitfire was Britain's most famous fighter of World War II. Noted principally for its role in the Battle of Britain, the Spitfire was developed during the late 1930s and first saw action in the fight to defend France in 1940. Its finest hour coincided with Britain's, and the famous 'few,' the pilots who fought against German bombers and their Me-109 escorts, maintained British air supremacy and turned the tide against Nazism. After 1940 the Spitfires were used in every theater of command, from Burma to Baltic, in the Western Desert and over Europe. Numerous variations on this aircraft were used not only by the British, but by the Free French, the Australians, Canadians and other Commonwealth Allies. The also served as Seafires on aircraft carriers. The story of the Spitfire and all of the technical changes and developments of this great aircraft are told by one of Britain's leading aviation historians, Chaz Bowyer.
