The Hurricane Pocket Manual, All Marks 1939-1945

B2329

READ THE FULL REVIEW

Conway pioneered a new type of pocket manual and it is great that this series is continuing to be supported by new owners Bloomsbury. What was revolutionary was the production of pocket manuals that actually did fit into pockets, were priced within the reach of even the younger reader, but provided content to satisfy the professional and the serious enthusiast. This new addition to the series covers the Hawker Hurricane, an all-time great of fighter design and production. A fitting book for an immortal aircraft, most enthusiastically recommended.
