The RAF expansion programme in the years leading up to World War Two saw the emergence of two superlative fighters, the Supermarine Spitfire, of which much has been written, and the often overlooked Hawker Hurricane.
Hawker Hurricane tells the full story of the true workhorse of RAF Fighter Command. Although best known for its successes in the Battle of Britain, the Hurricane served throughout the war, with great success over the Western Desert and Malta.
The design, development and operational career of this fine aeroplane is described in this fine addition to the Crowood Aviation Series.
