Based on the widely acclaimed 1987 Grub Street publication Malta: The Hurricane Years, Brian Cull's Hurricanes over Malta is a fully revised and updated account of the RAF and Commonwealth pilots who flew Hurricanes in defence of Malta between June 1940 and April 1942. Most of the Hurricanes which held this tiny outpost were flown from the decks of aircraft carriers or bases in North Africa, while a handful of fighter pilots arrived by Sunderland flying boats. Many of these men were inexperienced and quickly paid the supreme price, particularly when the Messerschmitt pilots of the elite 7/JG26 arrived in Sicily in early 1941.
Since the earlier publication, a number of important personal diaries and journals have come to light, and these have been widely quoted to give atmosphere to the story and relay the thoughts of some of the pilots. The impressions they provide are a fitting tribute to their courage, aspirations and fears. The book is further enhanced by the personal experiences of Flt Lt (then Sgt Plt) James Pickering AFC who flew Hurricanes with 261 Squadron, and who has also kindly provided the Foreword and many of the previously unpublished photos to be found within.
