The Fairey Swordfish General Purpose Spotter Reconnaissance and Torpedo Aircraft was introduced into service with the Royal Navy in July 1936, was obsolete by 1939 and went on to become one of the most famous of all World War II British aircraft.

The story of this most unlikely hero, and the Albacore, the successor that it overshadowed and outlived, is told here in fascinating detail. Including first-hand account from aircraft crews and a wealth of archive photographs, this is a book that deserves a place on the bookshelf of all enthusiasts of naval aviation.
