The Hawker Hurricane was a British single-seat fighter aircraft that was designed and predominantly built by Hawker Aircraft Ltd for the RAF. Although overshadowed by the Spitfire, during the Battle of Britain the Hurricane accounted for 60% of the RAF's air victories in the battle, and served in all the major theatres of the Second World War. The 1930s design evolved through several versions and adaptations, resulting in a series of aircraft that acted as interceptor-fighters, fighter-bombers (also called 'Hurribombers'), and ground support aircraft. Further versions known as the Sea Hurricane had modifications that enabled operation from ships. Some were converted as catapult-launched convoy escorts, known as 'Hurricats'. More than 14,583 Hurricanes were built by the end of 1944 (including at least 800 converted to Sea Hurricanes and some 1,400 built in Canada. The book collates a variety of pamphlets and manuals on the plane that were produced throughout the war for the benefit of pilots and others associated with the aircraft.

The Hawker Hurricane was the mainstay of the RAF during the early years of World War II. It saw extensive service in the Battle of Britain, over the Mediterranean and even saw action on the Eastern Front. Reliable, sturdy, rugged and effective this fighter proved itself time and again in action against the Luftwaffe. With a 1,260 horsepower Merlin engine the Hurricane was, for its time, one of the best fighters ever produced. This detailed, technical manual reveals the technology behind the Hurricane's fighting ability. It examines the aircraft's engine, armament, controls, design and technical specifications to give a clear picture of the plane's strengths and limitations. Technical drawings, electrical plans and cockpit photographs support the text. The Hurricane II Manual is a facsimile of the original official workshop manual - used by the personnel who flew and maintained the aircraft - first published in the 1940s.

The rise of transport airlines stems from the final days of World War II, when airplanes were used mostly by the military and for Government mail. Juan Trippe’s idea of an “Empire of the Air” transporting people was a distant dream. There were no footsteps to follow. Beyer, working himself up through the ranks, cast his practical eye at the many aspects of how an airline could run and prosper, and became known as an efficiency wizard. During his international career, he says what it was like dealing with government regulations, he describes the fleets and their maintenance, and at one point a revolution. All this is interspersed with some hilarious anecdotes. It was a risky business, and this is the true adventure of Mort Beyer’s life as the president of several scheduled and non scheduled airlines over a span of sixty years.
