From the publisher:
2017 marks the 80th anniversary of the remarkable Hawker Hurricane entering service. The RAF’s first monoplane fighter, it dragged the Royal Air Force into a position where it could defend Britain in its “hour of need.” Workhorse of the RAF, the Hurricane came into its own in the hot summer months of 1940, valiantly defending the skies above Britain. Outnumbering Spitfires three to one, the Hurricane also downed far more enemy aircraft. Without the obvious elegance of the Bf 109 or the Spitfire, the Hurricane was nonetheless beloved by its pilots for its ability to take a battering and inflict serious damage from its remarkably stable gun platform. This stunning new book reveals the Hurricane in all its glory, with brilliant in-flight photography of present-day as well as fascinating firsthand accounts from the men who flew them.

FSM says:
Lavishly illustrated with valuable modeling information, including several close-up detail photos of airframe areas not commonly seen in standard references as well as useful color profiles.
