Fascinating first-hand accounts of these gallant pilots form not only a history of the aircraft, but also a tribute to the many friends they lost in combat   Having tracked down the few surviving former Hurricane pilots who flew the aircraft during World War II, Brian Milton has brought together a unique series of personal experiences from his "Last Witnesses" to tell the story of what it was like to fly and fight in this iconic aircraft. The stories collected are of flying not only over the white cliffs of Dover during the Battle of Britain, but also during the Battle of France, the defense of Malta, in the intense heat of the North African desert, in the freezing temperatures of the Arctic wastes, and in the suffocating humidity of the Far East. The Hurricane served in every theater during World War II as a fighter, night fighter, ground attack aircraft, and even on board ship guarding vital convoys.
