Winter Of '41
With the Battle of Britain won, and the first chinks in Goering’s armour exposed, RAF Fighter Command is at last able to carry the war to the enemy. It is the bittersweet winter of ’41.’ Mk Vb Spitfires, having taken off as the first streaks of dawn spread across the morning sky, return to a snow-covered airfield after a dawn patrol over the Channel. Inhabitants of the sleepy English village begin to stir with the familiar sound of Merlin engines, counting each and every one of their fighter boys home.
