Classed as one of the best fighters of the war, the Bf109 served from 1938 to 1945 and beyond. After successful campaigns across Poland, France and the Low countries, this 'E' variant was the Spitfire's main adversary across England in 1940. While hampered by its short range, the Messerschmitt acquitted itself well, as it later did over the whole Western Front.
