During the Second World War, the Spitfire became the symbol of Britain's defiance of Nazi Germany and it has remained an icon of national pride ever since. In this remarkable collection of wartime photographs, many of them drawn from the personal albums of pilots and support staff, Sarkar traces the operational history of 'the most charismatic and inspirational aircraft ever built', from RJ Mitchell's drawing board, through its 'finest hour' in 1940 to the end of the war.
