Recensioner

The Hawker Hurricane was the RAF's first monoplane fighter, and it dragged the air force into a position where it could defend Britain in its "hour of need." Prior to the Battle of Britain, a number of squadrons equipped with the fighter had seen action firstly in the "Phoney War," and then during the disastrous campaign in France. Pilots like "Cobber" Kain had achieved impressive scores in the face of overwhelming Luftwaffe forces, and although the RAF lost no less than 386 Hurricanes during the Blitzkrieg, it gave many pilots valuable experience. Hawker fighters outnumbered Spitfires during the Battle of Britain by three to one, and downed far more aircraft. Overseas, a handful of pilots put up stiff resistance against Germany's Italian ally in Libya and Egypt, and also over Malta.… (mer)

Jako hlavní téma tohoto svazku edice Duel si autor zvolil nesmírně dramatický souboj letounů na nebi nad Francií a v bitvě o Británii v roce 1940. Na straně Spojenců se jej zúčastnily mj. první jednoplošné stíhačky RAF Hurricany, na straně Luftwaffe těžké stíhačky Bf 110. Tony Holmes podrobně rozebírá technické parametry a silné a slabé stránky obou aktérů válečného dění, popisuje jejich vývoj, vysvětluje příčiny, proč byly obratné a výkonné Hurricany deklasovány v jistých momentech bitvy německými Bf 110, analyzuje důvody, proč střetávání na nebi nad jižní Anglií dlouho nemělo vítěze, a především objasňuje, proč se nakonec hrdinou bitvy přece jen staly Hurricany, zatímco Bf 110 navzdory své podstatně silnější výzbroji složené z kanonů a kulometů selhaly. Kniha je vybavena množstvím dobových snímků a mapami.… (mer)
