Terence Kelly, a distinguished author, playwright and former Hurricane pilot, has collected a treasury of anecdotes from pilots who flew these trusty aircraft in various operational theatres during WWII. The reminiscences, some funny, some tragic, some mourning old comrades, some reliving dangerous encounters, all reviving what it was like to fly in these two well-beloved machines.
An interesting and well written book which contains a magnificent collection of Battle of Britain signatures.
