160 pp, 4to (12 1/4" H). Profusely illustrated with b&w photographs (most copied from the veterans' own albums), color profiles by Rob Lowry, and technical drawings. "The result of nine years of research and over two hundred interviews with former Spitfire pilots and ground crew from across Canada, (this book) is a momentous collection of personal memories and wartime aviation history. The stories are told with complete candour, in the pilots' and crew members' own words. Full of priceless historic photographs and intimate first-hand accounts, 'Spitfire: The Canadians' is perhaps the most important wartime aviation book published in many years." Top corners of both boards are bumped. Dust jacket has creasing at top of flap-folds, minor edge wrinkling elsewhere.
