Hunters over Arabia (ePub)
Hawker Hunter Operations in the Middle East
Based on official records held at the National Archives and other published sources, ‘Hunters over Arabia’ presents an in-depth account of the operations performed by the Hawker Hunter squadrons policing the desert wastelands and high mountain ranges of the Middle East. Copiously illustrated with colour and black and white photographs, a high percentage of operations performed by this versatile British ground attack and reconnaissance fighter are described in detail.
Using a chronological format, the narrative focuses on the period during which the Hunter served in the Middle East, from 1960 to 1971. Further chapters are dedicated to the three Hunter variants most closely associated with the Middle East, the FGA.9, FR.10 and T.7, together with their respective allocation dates. A short background to Aden, its historical links to Britain, and RAF airfields administered by Middle East Command complete this factual account.
The definitive book on RAF Hunter operations in the area, and an invaluable reference for anybody researching any aspect of the UK's involvement in a still-troubled region.Amazon Customer, Damien Burke

This book is very interesting because it tells of a conflict that I knew little about, and that with a series of beautiful photos illustrates the action of an aircraft that proved to be extremely effective. The further interest is given by a narration of events that is fluid and never boring.Old Barbed Wire Blog
