The firm of Vickers Supermarine is rightly famous for the Spitfire, perhaps the best-loved and most recognisable aircraft in the world. It was a fighter par excellence, continually updated and modified. This development kept the Spitfire in active service throughout the war, and the development is told here in detail. However, the Spitfire was not Supermarine’s only fighter and this book also discusses the Spitfire’s experimental predecessors and the aircraft that came after it. These include the novelised version – the Seafire, and the ultimate development of the Spitfire theme – the Spiteful and the Seafang. Illustrated throughout.
