This book was published for the Spitfire’s 50th anniversary and Jeffrey Quill recounts the events leading up to its dramatic and triumphant birth and of the precarious first few years of its development.
As Supermarine Chief Test Pilot, the author’s life was centred on the Spitfire and nobody was better qualified to write this book.
A brilliant Spitfire book!
