FRONT LINE HURRICANES
by Robert Taylor
On May 10th, 1940 upwards of seventy airfields in France,
Belgium and the Netherlands came under heavy attack from the Luftwaffe,
at that time rampant across the skies of northern Europe. Aware that the
crucial Battle of Britain was to come, Fighter Command’s Hugh Dowding
could risk but four squadrons of his valuable Hurricane fighters to support
the British Expeditionary Force as it fought its rearguard action in France.
