KIRKUS REVIEW

A full hearted tribute and tallyho to the Hawker Hurricane, its ""conception, birth, life and passing"" which in its speed, maneuverability and invincibility saved England in the Battle of Britain. From Sydney Camm's designs at first rejected, then accepted to offset the German Messerschmitt, to its hurried manufacture, to the beginning of the war which found 496 Hurricanes on hand, this proceeds to immortalize the record of this phantom ship- the ""Lone Ranger of the sky"" through miscellaneous actions and successes. Gallico's hero worship is unabashed if assured of an audience- masculine to military.
