  • Spitfire Ace

    Martin Davidson, James Taylor

    Spitfire Ace
    The Battle of Britain, 1940, was one of the most famous air battles in the history of warfare and it is a story of ruthless organisation, brilliant control and command. But at its heart is one particular figure, a legend ever since. The RAF fighter pilot. And one particular plane - a piece of machinery that has almost mythic historical glamour - the Supermarine Spitfire. Accompanying a Channel 4 series of the same name, "Spitfire Pilot" reintroduces us to the few that flew in the Battle of Britain and includes interviews with 25 of the 35 remaining veteran Spitfire pilots. Combined with a historical narrative of the events surrounding the Battle of Britain, the reader learns what is was like to fly a Spitfire and to experience combat flying at its most visceral. Illustrated with over 80 photographs and contemporary archive material, "Spitfire Pilot" provides a vivid portrait of the fighter boys and their finest hour, their planes (including Spitfires, Hurricanes and Messerschmitts) and Fighter Command - RAF versus the Luftwaffe.
  • Fight for the Sky: The Story of the Spitfire and Hurricane

    Douglas Bader

    Fight for the Sky: The Story of the Spitfire and Hurricane
    Pen and Sword Books are proud to be re-issuing this the only book that the legendary 'legless' ace Douglas Bader (immortalised by the film Reach For The Sky) wrote. He tells the inspiring story of the Battle of Britain from the viewpoint of 'The Few'. Using superb illustrations he traces the development of the Spitfire and Hurricane and describes the nail-biting actions of those who flew them against far superior numbers of enemy aircraft. As an added bonus, other well-known fighter aces including Johnnie Johnson, 'Laddie' Lucas and Max Aikten contribute to Douglas's book, no doubt out of affection and respect. This is a really important contribution to RAF history by one of the greatest - and certainly the most famous - pilot of the Second World War.
