Rocket-firing Typhoons were the scourge of the Normandy battlefields after D-Day in 1944 and were responsible for inflicting catastrophic losses on the German Army. Typhoons continued with their hazardous tactical support sorties during the Allied advance into Germany, striking at enemy tanks and dog-fighting with German fighters defending the Reich.

Author Tony Hoskins had rare and privileged access to the restoration to flight by the Hawker Typhoon Preservation Group of surviving Typhoon airframe (RB396) and its Napier Sabre engine. Hawker Typhoon Owners' Workshop Manual features interviews with the engineers rebuilding RB396, and archive material from Second World War Typhoon pilots and groundcrews.
