Product description

Category Aviation Books, Subcategory WW2 UK Aircraft, ISBN/Box 9781911658290, Series Fleet Air Arm Legends, Publisher/Brand Tempest Books, Author Matthew Willis, Format 18,4 x 24,8,2 cm, No. Pages 90, Version Soft cover, Language English

Renowned naval aviation author Matthew Willis tells the story of the Supermarine Seafire - a navalised version of the famous Spitfire adapted for use on aircraft carriers. Some 2646 examples were built and saw action with the Royal Navy's Fleet Air Arm from November 1942 until after the Korean War in the early 1950s. It was involved in combat during the Allied landings in North Africa (Operation Torch), the Allied invasions of Sicily and Italy, the D-Day landings, and Operation Dragoon in southern France. With the Pacific fleet, the Seafire proved capable of intercepting and destroying the feared Japanese kamikaze attack aircraft.
