Although first designed as a fighter, during the fighting in and over Europe during 1944 and 1945, the Hawker Typhoon gained a tremendous reputation and true fame as a ground-attack aircraft and tank-buster. This offensive ground-attack work is well known but tends to overshadow the type’s successes operating from 1942 as a true fighter based in the UK. Many books that document the Typhoon cover it in conjunction with its successor, the Hawker Tempest. However, this work, fully illustrated with over 180 photographs, gives this heavyweight machine a well-deserved volume of its own.
