This is a volume in the Sutton ‘story’ series of pocket books that offer very good value for money. It follows the format established so successfully by the first books in the series. Colour is used throughout. Extended captions and side bar notes compliment the text in what is a lavishly illustrated book. The text is authoritative and concise, creating a work which is easy to read for a young reader establishing an interest in the subject covered, but of a competency that a professional or serious enthusiast would still find it of value. An amazing amount of detail is packed into the pages and there is everything that you might wish to know about the subject. The Hawker Hurricane was both the first heavy gun monoplane fighter to enter RAF service mounting a massive armament of eight rifle calibre machine guns at a time when most other fighters mounted two or four similar guns.
