Description

Introduction

 

" When the 50th Anniversary of the Battle of Britain is celebrated in 1990, there will be even more Spitfires in the air than today. Another generation will hear the sound of freedom and see one of the world's best loved aeroplanes. " Those words appeared at the end of the introduction to Spitfire - A Living Legend, the author's first pictorial tribute to Britain's most celebrated fighter which was published in 1985.

 

The fact that Spitfire - The Legend Lives On is a completely new book reflects the relentless growth of the Spitfire restoration scene. " Old Friends " from the R.A.F. Battle of Britain Memorial Flight qualify for inclusion as of right, but many of their Spitfires have been repainted in new Squadron markings since the original book was published. ( ... )

À PROPOS DE CET EDITEUR
Osprey Publishing Limited
In the 1960's, the Brooke Bond Tea Company began including a series of military aircraft cards with packages of their tea. The cards proved popular, and the artist Richard " Dick " Ward proposed the idea of publishing illustrated books about military aircraft. The idea was approved and a small subsidiary company called Osprey was formed in 1968. The company’s first book, North American P - 51D Mustang in U.S.A.A.F. - U.S.A.F. Service, was published in 1969. Soon after, Richard " Dick " Ward proposed trying the same idea with famous military units, and in 1971, the first Men - at - Arms title appeared. In the late 1970's, the firm was acquired by George Philip Ltd. In 1988, Philip was acquired by Reed International ; it was sold to the private equity firm Botts & Company. During these years, the firm grew steadily, adding new titles and new series to their catalogue. Although they have produced books of all types, the main focus remains on military history, particularly the military history of Britain. Osprey Publishing now publishes an average of 10 - 12 books a month. In 2014, Osprey and its imprints were sold by Alcuin Capital Partners. Angry Robot, Nourish and Watkins went to Etan Ilfeld while Osprey, Shire, Old House and British Wildlife went to Bloomsbury Publishing. ( source : Wikipedia )
