Hurricane and Spitfire Pilots at War

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 RAFÕs 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.
