Martin Derry, Neil Robinson; FlightCraft Series. When Sidney Cammís masterpiece, the Hawker Hurricane, entered RAF service in late 1937 it quickly became one of the most important aircraft in Britainís military arsenal, especially in the first three years of the Second World War. This title covers the history of this iconic design, from the prototype and the initial production variantsí entry in to RAF service, through its development and use, first as a day fighter, and then night fighter, intruder, fighter-bomber, catapult-launched and then carrier-based fighter, and eventually dedicated ground attack machine.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            The Hurricane served in every wartime theater, from Norway and France, the Battle of Britain, the defense of Malta, to the campaigns in the Western Desert and the Mediterranean, on the Russian Front and in the Far East where it saw service until the end of hostilities.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               Split into three primary sections, this volume offers a concise yet informative history of the Hurricane's development, operational career and design improvements, including many contemporary photographs with detailed captions. Finally a section prepared by that well-known and established doyen of model makers, Tony O'Toole, listing and illustrating the plastic model kits produced of the Hurricane in all scales.  As with the other books in the Flight Craft series, whilst published primarily with the scale aircraft modeler in mind, it is hoped that those readers who might perhaps describe themselves as 'occasional' modelers, if indeed they model at all, may also find that this colorful and informative work offers something to provoke their interests too. Illustrated with 180 photographs, 20 full color profiles; 96 pages.
