Obsolete But Willing by Roger H. Middlebrook
The highly unusual Vickers Wellesley started life as a private venture in response to an Air Ministry specification calling for a general-purpose biplane. While several companies tendered biplanes to the competition, Vickers, led by Barnes Wallis, introduced both a biplane and a monoplane. The monoplane proved so superior that the specification was changed and 96 aircraft were ordered.

Hopgood's Final Act by Darryl Legg

This Sceptred Isle by Robert Taylor
Spitfires from RAF 74 Squadron cross the English coast at Beachy Head after intercepting a formation of Luftwaffe raiders during the Battle of Britain, August 1940.

To cross the Channel and breach British defences, the Luftwaffe had to gain control of the skies, and by July 1940 the most famous air battle in history was underway. Impossibly outnumbered, the courageous young men from Fighter Command – Churchill’s ‘Few’ – battled to defend their Sceptred Isle, ...
