Description

This amalgam of text and photographs traces the story of the Hurricane and its crew from the first prototype and pre-1939 service to France 1940 ; through the Battle of Britain ; in the frozen wastes of North Russia ; over beleagured Malta, across Sicily and Greece and as far afield as the Burmese jungle. There are pilots' accounts of low-level bombing sorties, covering the disastrous Dieppe invasion, a personal story by the only fighter pilot of World War II to be awarded the Victoria Cross, and pictorial sections illustrating the armament, marking and, especially, the men who knew the Hurrivane best-the crew. Chaz Bowyer (1926-2008) became fascinated with aeroplanes as a child and at 16 joined the R.A.F. For regular service. He started writing on aviation history in 1958. He was a frequent contributor to aviation magazines.
