The Fw190’s supremacy over the Spitfire V is a classic legend from the Second World War, heralding one of the darkest times for Fighter Command and the RAF. A Tale of Ten Spitfires brings this legend to life by examining the individual combat histories of ten Spitfire VCs, the first of which is the Shuttleworth Collection’s well known Spitfire AR501, followed by the next nine on the production line, AR502 to AR510.
This link to a ‘living’ airframe, which has recently flown again after an epic 13 year restoration, will appeal to both enthusiasts of AR501 and anyone with a wider in interest in this classic British icon.
Through first hand accounts, combat reports, unit diaries and more, the book provides a unique looking glass into the period, told via the experiences of the Spitfire pilots themselves, tracing their fates and those of the ten machines that they flew.
