Praise

“The proverbial meat on the bones rests within the book’s second half.  Here, Chorlton adroitly recounts the aircraft’s wartime evolution – from “cutting their teeth during the battle of France” to excelling during the Battle of Britain … Forty historic photographs and additional artwork compliment this handy publication.  Looking for paint schemes?  Eight color profiles – including the final Hurricane produced – and a foldout schematic offer ample inspiration for hobbyists.”
- Rachel E. Veres, www.cybermodeler.com

“…features full-color artwork and illustrations, as well as cut-away art. Author Martyn Chorlton details the design, development, specs and operational history of this Royal Air Force necessity.”
- Model Retailer (May 2013)

“As in other books in this series, the author, Martyn Chorlon, covers the background and the development of the aircraft. We see how it is used in various theathers of operation and how the aircraft improved over the years. Unlike the Spitfire, the last Hurricane was nearly identical in looks from the first Hurricane. All of the various marks are covered and there are several pages of nice full color profiles. In addition, the back cover is a two page cutaway of the Hurricane. In all, it is another superb title in the Air Vanguard series.”
- Scott Van Aken, www.modelingmadness.com (March 2013)

“charts the evolution and impact of the Hurricane, which became the fighter plane of choice in North Africa and the Far East during World War II. It charts the rise and experiences of Hurricane squadrons, their battles, and the evolution of the craft itself, providing many vintage black and white photos throughout. Any World War II collection or aviation library will find this a winning title!”
