Victory Over Gold by Nicolas Trudgian features Spitfires of 401 Squadron over the Normandy beaches. The morning of June 7, 1944 a dozen Ju88s appeared over Gold Beach, intent of making a diving attack on the heavily populated beachhead. The patrolling Spitfires of 401 Squadron wasted no time in getting into the fray. In the ensuing dogfight the Canadian pilots destroyed no fewer than six of the Ju88s, and the attack on the beach was averted.
