Seated in the cockpit of his Hurricane, Sergeant George Yeoman young, eager, and innocent in the ways of war is on his way to join his first operational squadron.
Meanwhile, the German Panzers advance unchecked through the Ardennes, and as the allied bombers plead to strike at them, the Luftwaffe is already set to launch a decisive blow.
Disaster beckons and Yeoman and No. 505 Squadron soon find themselves courting death in a series of increasingly desperate sorties as the allied army begins its retreat towards Dunkirk.
There are only a handful of them against the might of Hitlers war machine, and with each sortie the ranks of the Squadron grow ever more depleted.
The odds stacked against them are hopeless
A vivid tale of a fighter squadron at war, Hurricane Squadron is told with painstaking accuracy, charting a young mans rise to maturity in the face of combat and sudden death.
