Publisher's Summary

With its proven pedigree as a fighter, the Spitfire ranks among the greatest aircraft ever built - remembered with affection by those who flew or maintained it, and revered by the British people who regarded it as the "defender of our skies" against Nazi invasion. Featuring vivid narrative, this publication reveals the full extent of the Spitfire's impact on the outcome of the war and the heroic efforts of the pilots who defended Britain at all costs.
Narrated by the daughter of Felix Gilbert, a decorated airman with the US Army Air Corps 8th Air Force, stationed for some of the war in England. He was a pilot and Jimmy Stewart's lead navigator.
