Based on the widely acclaimed 1987 Grub Street publication ‘Malta: The Hurricane Years’, this is a fully revised and updated account of the pilots who flew Hurricanes in defence of Malta. Since the earlier publication, a number of important personal diaries and journals have come to light as well as photos which have been used to give atmosphere to the story and relay the thoughts of some of the pilots.
An excellent reference book on this fascinating aspect of the air war.
