Spitfire by John Vader (Ballantine's Illustrated History of World War II - weapons book No. 6) is a softcover non-fiction book published in 1969, 160 pages in length, 113 black-and-white photographs and 5.4 x 8.3 inches in size.

This book is a great introduction to the legendary RAF Spitfire fighter of World War II.

The book tells the story of the Spitfire with the aid of over 100 photos. Here is a summary of the major sections in this book:

  • Prologue - how to fly a Spitfire from take-off to landing
  • Schneider trophy and prototype
  • Into service and training
  • The Battle of Britain
  • Marks II-V
  • Spitfires abroad
  • Spitfire strength and Spitfire pilots
  • Marks VI-XI
  • Griffon, photo reconnaissance and floatplanes
  • Seafire, Spiteful and Seafang
  • Epilogue
  • Bibliography

A tribute to the sturdiness of the Spitfire: "Spitfires have hit the ground, touched the sea, bashed through trees, cut telegraph and high tension wires, collided in the air, been shot to pieces, had rudders and parts of wings fall off and have yet made safe landings, with or without wheels."
