Review by Dirk_P_Broer
A nice little book about the Hawker Hurricane. Very good 'coffee table book' for those of us without large coffee tables. Good photographs in a nice mix of restored planes in colour and vintage black-and-white ones. Very 'modern' in appearance. Did you know? all over the book, offering much insight. Ideal for youngsters to use for an essay about the airplane.
