The most complete, authoritative work on the Hurricane by the leading expert on the subject. More than 14000 Hurricanes were produced in the space of 7 years and this book attempts to recount the achievements of the ‘Hurricane men’, those who worked to get the aeroplane started, who designed it, tested it, fought it and maintained it in the many diverse theatres of war in which it operated. The very useful appendix contains a production list showing the allocations and fate of every Hurricane by serial number.
If you only have room for one reference book on the Hurricane, this is the one to have!
