In the early months of WWII much of the air war in Western Europe and Southern England was carried on between Spitfires, Hurricanes and Bf 109s. Having gained a degree of success over Poland, Norway and France, German introduced its “heavy fighter,” the Bf 110 Zerstörr, into the fray. The story of how the Hurricane in particular bested the highly touted twin-engine fighter is covered in this book.
