Description
When the Royal Air Force triumphed over the Luftwaffe in the skies over Britain in 1940—the battle in which Winston Churchill declared "Never, in the field of human conflict, was so much owed by so many to so few"—the aircraft that the British public came to identify with "the Few" was the graceful, deadly Supermarine Spitfire. Continually refined during the war, it became synonymous with the RAF fighter corps. Hundreds of black and white and color images illustrate this visual history of the iconic fighter plane—including engineering diagrams, archival photos, reproductions of ephemera, and color portraits of still-flying Spitfires, up to 17 x 10 inches—and three major variants are profiled in double gatefolds.
