An updated and extended version of the now out-of-print CW volume on ANZAC Spitfire pilots, this new book in the highly acclaimed “Classic Warbirds” series tells the stories of ten Australian and New Zealand pilots in WW2, flying Spitfires and Hurricanes based in Britain, the Middle East and the CBI theatre. Based on interviews with the pilots and their written memoirs, this is a fascinating look at the personalities inside the fighter planes. Profusely illustrated with photos (many from the pilots’ own collections) and Malcolm Laird’s superb artwork, this is essential reading for students of WW2 air warfare, enthusiasts and modellers.
