Description
An anthology of personal stories by those who designed, built, maintained and flew the iconic aircraft. Tales of courage, humour, wartime drama and peacetime triumph; from the 1930s to the present day. Among these accounts is the extraordinary tale of the fighter pilot who only discovered, fifty years on, the tragic truth of his last Spitfire flight, the businessman whose blank cheque changed the course of the war, the ninety-five-year-old Royal Air Force engineer who was determined to be reunited with his beloved ‘Spit’ before he died. Drawn from documents, letters and photographs from the Imperial War Museums' unparalleled archive, plus exclusive first-hand interviews, these stories of the Spitfire are a revelatory collection of small but significant histories, all to be treasured.
