KANALKAMPF, 1941-1943

Spitfire Aces of the Channel Front 1941-43 (Aircraft of the Aces) - Andrew Thomas, Chris Thomas

This book offers a first-rate story of the struggles Fighter Command faced between 1941 and 1943 to wrest air supremacy from the Luftwaffe over the Channel Front with the different variants of the Spitfire.   There are also plenty of quality photos and color illustrations of the Spitfires flown by those fighter pilots - British, Canadian, Australian, Free French, Belgian, Polish, Dutch, New Zealander, Norwegian, and South African - who 'made ace' during those crucial years.   I greatly enjoyed reading this book.
