{detailed description}`She was loved and trusted by every man who ever knew her.
To the eyes of the young men who looked upon her with warmth and affection she had beauty unsurpassed.
To her friends she was gentle, staunch, loyal and a protectress; to her enemies she was a lightning bolt from the skies, a ruthless and total destroyer.
She was unique in the heavens for there was nothing she could not do there when called upon by those who loved and needed her.
An inanimate piece of machinery, a mass of tubes, wire, steel, aluminium, she flew like an angel.
She had no vices.
In the hands of the young men, who mastered her and became her lovers, she saved England and all that rest of the world that cherished the right of freedom.
She was the Hawker Hurricane.'

Paul Gallico whose name, since he wrote The Snow Goose, has become permanently linked with those early days of the war when England stood alone against the Germans, has written the whole exciting and inspiring life story of the greatest British fighter plane, from the drawing board through the battles of World War II. It is a story of great daring, imagination, and unparalleled human courage—the biography of an aircraft which came to personify toughness and audacity.
