Spitfire - the history of Britain' most famous world war II fighter - specifications, development, over 110 photographs, detailed artworks
Publisher: PARRAGON (January 1, 2003)

The British Supermarine Spitfire was designed for the sole purpose of winning the prestigious Schneider Trophy between the two world wars which dominated the first half of the 20th Century. There is no doubt that new, and quite revolutionary forward swept wing was the stuff of pure genius and the trophy was won outright. As another war with Germany loomed, however, the Royal Air Force desperately needed a new fighter. It was from that earlier successful design that a more powerful aircraft was born and into which was fitted the new Merlin Engine. This was an aircraft that could spit fire and the Spitfire was born.

This is a most competent work and one which is well worth obtaining for those with an interest in the Spitfire. Some of the detail contained in this book was new to me and, therefore, adds much to one's overall interest.

This author knows his stuff and regularly obtains top grades for his books.
