Designed before the onset of World War II, this fast and maneuverable fighter became the backbone of the RAF’s Fighter Command during the Battle of Britain. In fact, the Hawker Hurricane won the majority of the aerial victories that gave the RAF the edge over the German Luftwaffe in the crucial days of 1940.
With comprehensive historical research supported by first hand accounts of flying this iconic machine in action, and illustrated by new colour paintings and photographs, together with contemporary black and white images, this beautifully presented book puts you in the cockpit and behind the stick of this famous RAF aircraft.
