Hawker. One of Aviation's Greatest Names A biography of Harry Hawker MBE, AFC. Foreword by Sir Thomas Sopwith CBE

Auckland: David Bateman, 1990. Octavo, blue hardcover, 232 pp., plates. A little rubbed at spine ends, dust jacket slightly creased and chipped at top-edge, otherwise a near-fine copy. Harry Hawker was an Australian of pioneer stock who left school at twelve and had no further formal education. How did a comparatively uneducated man come to play a key role in Sopwith, the company that produced the Pup and Camel in World War I, and later found his own company which produced Schneider Trophy-winning aircraft between the wars and the Hurricane of World War II?
