Hurricane : the plane that saved Britain

Stewart, Adrian2021
Books
The Hawker Hurricane was flying on the outbreak of war in 1939. Six years later, having saved Britain, it was still playing a major part in the war effort. Widely remembered in its fighter role and unjustly left in the shade of the Spitfire, the Hurricane's role was varied and pivotal: as a fighter, fighter-bomber, anti-tank aircraft and used at sea. Nor was its theatre of operations any less wide: it saw action in France from the beginning of the Phoney War to the outbreak of the Blitzkrieg, in the Battle of Britain, and then as far afield as Russia, Sumatra, and Madagascar. In this intensely readable, spirited, and classic account, Adrian Stewart describes all the Hurricane's roles, adventures, and achievements.
