Comments: It is difficult to overestimate the excitement that accompanied the birth of the Spitfire. An aircraft imbued with balletic grace, and extraordinary versatility, it was powered by a piston engine and a propeller, yet came tantalisinly close to breaking the sound barrier. First flown in 1936, the Spitfire so became a symbol of Britain’s defiance of Nazi Germany in the summer of 1940, Flown by pilots of many nations, it saw service as far afield as Australia and the Soviet Union.
This is the story of the Spitfire fighter.
Small mark on the bottom of the book (page block) else a great copy.
