Published in association with Imperial War Museums, this is a fascinating anthology of first-hand stories from Spitfire heroes and heroines of World War II.The Spitfire has an unrivalled place in Britain's history, the most famous plane of World War Two and a huge source of national pride: with its elegant, distinctive wing design, the single-seater fighter plane has, over time, become one of the most iconic aviation images of the modern world.Yet it is the human element of the Spitfire story, the people behind the iconic plane, whose stories are as compelling and fascinating as the plane itself.Spitfire Stories, published in association with Imperial War Museums, is an anthology of first hand and retold stories from Spitfire history, as recounted by the designers, the engineers, the mechanics, the ground staff and, of course, the Spitfire pilots and their families, who helped steer Britain to victory. This anthology of real life stories of courage, heartbreak, humour and tenacity reveals a hitherto little known side of the Spitfire story - an extraordinary history that will continue to resonate powerfully down the years. Using documents, letters, stories, photographs and articles from the Museum's unparalleled archive, this is a wonderfully evocative tribute to the most iconic plane in aviation history - and the people behind it.
