The Pocket Manual is a compilation of various Air Ministry pamphlets, publications, and manuals on the Hawker Hurricane.

The book starts with the design specifications and related documents. This is followed by the pilot notes in chapter 2, the tactical in chapter 3, and operations in chapter 4 publications. These last sections detail aspects of tactical trials as well as 111 SQ operations record book, Fighter Command Combat report for 12 Group and Sqdn. Leader Douglas Bader's September 7-19, 1940 flight log.

This is an interesting look at various period publications to aid in operating and maintaining the Hurricane. There is good information for the historian, pilot and some nice detailed period cockpit photos with instrumentation callouts. If the Mosquito interests you, you will find this book to your liking

Our thanks to Osprey Publishing for the review copy and my thanks to IPMS/USA for the review opportunity
