The Battle Of Britain is an extensive detailing of the development and deployment of the British Spitfire Mk XVI fighter plane, which became known as the Spitfire. The story begins with a biography of aero-engineer R. J. Mitchell, who was the designer of the Spitfire, and continues on with interviews with historians and Dr. Gordon Mitchell, R. J. Mitchell's son. The film illustrates Mitchell's work in developing the fastest planes ever, and his culminating work in designing the original and very effective Spitfire. The film then takes a journey through the Battle of Britain, as Mitchell's Spitfire proves to be the weapon that wins the war and affects the entire political future of Europe. The final scenes share the experience of the 50th Anniversary Fly-Over of London, celebrating the end of the Battle of Britain, and the brave and visionary men and women who worked and fought for victory.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
