    This volume is in fact a compilation of official Air Ministry documents together with extracts from log books combat reports a lectures given by Spitfire pilots It is in short a fascinating collection of authentic material which gives a very good feeling for the time at which it was prepared even down to the spelling mistakes in the original typescripts There is a lot of technical detail of the aircraft and a history of its evolution from Mark I to Mark XXX or whatever It was such a good airframe it lent itself to continuous upgradeAs for flying the beast I suspect it was a joy to fly once you got it off the ground the torue of the single propeller and the 2000 hp from the Merlin engine must have made keeping it in straight line during take off a nightmare the nose had to be kept up to avoid digging the prop into the ground and the narrow under carriage must have made landings uite difficult That being said once in the air the aircraft was very manoeuvrable and fast More than a match for the ME109EVery much an iconic aircraft as evidenced by the examples to be found in air museums all over the world

    “Spitfire Manual 1940” Edited by Dilip Sarker 2010 This book is comprised of numerous facsimiles of leaflets that were disseminated by the Air Ministry during WWII as well as as the title suggests a manual for the Supermarine Spitfire MK IIA Most of the articles are authored by experienced suadron leaders who share their battle proven techniues in aerial combat Although a large portion of the book is devoted to the subject of deflection shooting nearly every aspect of flying the Spitfire is touched upon
