Spitfire
The Illustrated Biography. Hmmm. Great photos. Plenty of information, but lacking any first-hand accounts from pilots of actual experiences with which this sort of book should be stuffed full. Also nothing in depth about the people involved, whether designers, pilots or RAF leaders.
Bit rubbish really, poor writing, structured badly and very very plain. No excitement, no human interest. Just some facts, and some waffle. Still, I might pick out some pilot memoirs from his bibliography.
Score: 6
