Story: Gallico wrote a readable account ot the birth and use of the Hawker Hurricane during Word War 2. I browsed the book and from what I've read elsewhere what he says generally gibes with other figures and Writers as the Brits were usually making up their figures when comparing their losses versus the Nazi ones. Goering miscaculated and probably could have won the Battle of Britain in the air if he'd stopped screwing around and continued to concentrate on knocking off our planes first and then knocking out the airfields after during the various battes. And it would have helped if they'd had Radar. It's a very readable book as Gallico's a good Writer. If I was still a serious Collector I'd probably keep the book as once a Collector, usually aways a Collector. It gets in your blood to hold a book. Something like holding a good-looking woman with one arm and a glass of Scotch in the other, so to say. Recommended. (The book, not the other.) 004557
