Little Book of the Spitfire is a 128-page hardback book fully illustrated with photographs written by David Curnock. In the history of the aeroplane there is one aircraft that is fully deserving of the accolade legendary - the Supermarine Spitfire. Against overwhelming odds the Battle of Britain, and taking part in major actions in every operational theatre in World War 2, the Spitfire became a symbol of victory. Built in greater numbers than any other aircraft of the time, examples of this icon of British aviation achievement are still flying today. (hb)
