Osprey Aircraft of the Aces Number 12: Spitfire Mark I/II Aces 1939-1941. Contains 96 pages of text, black and white photos and colour side profiles.

Spitfire Mk Is and IIs served only briefly in the frontline with the RAF, but their pilots were responsible for achieving impressive scores against the Luftwaffe during 1940/41. This volume details the RAF’s first aces of World War 2 who helped stem the German tide during Britain’s struggle for survival in the bitter years between 1939 and 1941. Early-mark Spitfires were notorious for their light armament, overheating engines and short range, but during the dogfights over Dunkirk and south-east England, then the first tentative sweeps across France, many pilots achieved scores of note.
