Riassunto: In the summer of 1940 the fate of Europe hung in the balance. Victory in the forthcoming air battle would mean national survival; defeat would establish German tyranny. The Luftwaffe greatly outnumbered the RAF, but during the Battle of Britain it was the RAF that emerged triumphant, thanks to two key fighter planes, the Spitfire and the Hurricane. The Hurricane made up over half of Fighter Command's front-line strength, and its revolutionary design transformed the RAF's capabilities. Leo McKinstry tells the story of the remarkable plane from its designers to the first-hand testimonies of those brave pilots who flew it; he takes in the full military and political background but always keeps the human stories to the fore - to restore the Hawker Hurricane to its rightful place in history.
L'autore: Leo McKinstry writes regularly for the Daily Express, Daily Mail, Sunday Telegraph and The Spectator. He has also written six books, including Spitfire, Lancaster and a bestselling biography of the footballing Charlton brothers. Born in Belfast he was educated in Ireland and at Cambridge University.
