  • About the Edition

    They say she was beautiful. A dream. But for all her good looks, she was also a killer. It is an epic, sweeping tale of determination, vision and courage. It is the story of an airplane that was forged in competition, shaped as the war clouds gathered, and refined in the white heat of combat, going on to become the most famous fighter plane ever made.
