Most people asked to name one British Second World War airplane would say the Spitfire. Yet the Hawker Hurricane flew in greater numbers, in more variants and in more theaters than the redoubtable Spitfire.

Adrian Stewart has researched the evolution of the Hurricane from its 1935 maiden flight through to victory in the Far East in 1945. He brings his story alive by letting those who flew this legendary aircraft tell it as it was.

After the faltering first steps in the mid 1930s the Hurricane really 'took off' and became hugely popular in the RAF and allied air forces.

They Flew The Hurricane contains numerous first hand accounts from pilots operating in such diverse campaigns as the Battle of Britain, North Africa, Russia, the Far East and North West Europe from 1940 to 1945.

These thrilling vignettes combine to bring to life action in the air.

Book Description Pen & Sword Books Ltd, United Kingdom, 2005. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. The Hawker Hurricane and the Supermarine Spitfire were the two outstanding British-built fighter aircraft of World War II. In the Battle of Britain they formed the backbone of the RAF's famous victory against the Luftwaffe. Although often compared with each other by contemporary historians, many miss the point that each aircraft had its outstanding merits and served different purposes. This book looks at the operation of these aircraft in Europe, the Middle East and the Far East throughout World War II. It includes many first-hand accounts from the pilots themselves who relive exciting memories of flying the aircraft in combat. Seller Inventory # BZV9781844150649
