Overview

• Exclusive series of full colour plates of the Spitfire in its most exotic liveries, in British and foreign service during and after WW2

The Spitfire fighter's camouflage schemes of the Second World War have been the subject of numerous publications. Consequently, the purpose of this book is rather to deal with the many little-known variations of these camouflages, whether temporary, local, or used by other air forces equipped with the famous plane, during and after the conflict.

These unconventional liveries, unofficial or not, are specific to certain theatres of operations and often improvised to adapt to the region.
The 160 colour profiles were accurately produced following extensive research and in particular interviews with veterans.
