On 3 June 1944, on the eve of D-Day, Generals Eisenhower and Montgomery held a farewell party for all the senior officers commanding forces for the Normandy invasion. The party was held at Supermarine's headquarters near Winchester and a suitable security-cleared lady was required as hostess. Stella Rutter, the first draughtswoman to work for the Spitfire manufacturer, was entrusted with this sensitive duty; this book tells her remarkable story and records her memories of the historic gathering.
