TEN SQUADRONS OF HURRICANES - Special Edition


Price per Unit (piece): £115.00


A FITTING TRIBUTE TO A TRULY REMARKABLE AND ICONIC AIRCRAFT

For many years the importance and contribution of the Hawker Hurricane was eclipsed by the Spitfire but statistically the Hurricane was superior in the majority of cases.

Thanks to Tommy Sopwith's initiative and gamble the Hurricane was ready at the outbreak of the Second World War and in service throughout.

As this superbly researched book reveals by examining the roles, actions and personalities of ten Hurricane squadrons, this iconic aircraft was not only exceptionally robust but astonishingly versatile. The book tracks its performance from the Battle of France, Battle of Britain, through Africa, the Middle East, Italy and on to Burma.

It excelled as day and night interceptor, intruder and importantly as a rocket firing tank buster. The Hurricane inspired great loyalty among its pilots and their colourful personalities and thrilling experiences make this splendid book an informative and entertaining read.
