Description

The Hurricane was the RAF's first monoplane fighter, and saw widespread service with Allied forces. This book describes its many feats throughout 1945. Used as a fighter-bomber on the Channel coast, the Hurricane was flown by numerous squadrons in Fighter Command, including the American Eagles and Polish units. Some of the highest-scoring aces to fly the Hurricane saw action in this theatre. The Fleet Air Arm also used the Sea Hurricane as its principle fighter in the Mediterranean, creating a handful of aces. In the Far East, Hurricane units failed in their attempt to defend Singapore and Malaya from the Japanese but continued to take the fight to the enemy from bases in India and Ceylon. The Hurricane was still in the frontline in this theatre in 1945.

If you know this series, you will already be aware of its virtues; if not, it's time you found out its benefits both to the modeller and to the aviation historian.

Arguably the finest profile artist in the business, John Weal's love of German aircraft makes his work a treat for students of the subject.
