Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0921022069, Hardcover)

From 1942 onward, members of the Royal Canadian Air Force served on Typhoon squadrons. Later, others flew the awesome Tempest, a hybrid Typhoon spin-off and one of the most advanced fighters of the day. Typhoon and Tempest: The Canadian Story is the first book to describe this special niche in RCAF history. From the original few Canadians operating the as yet unproven Typhoon interceptor on RAF squadrons, to its final emergence as a classic fighter-bomber, Typhoon and Tempest provides all the details from an RCAF perspective. Halliday places special emphasis upon the activities of the all-Canadian Typhoon organization-No. 143 Wing, which comprised Nos. 438, 439 and 440 Squadrons. Halliday captures the essence of these groups through his detailed descriptions of ordinary squadron life, including the rigors and boredom of training, the moves from airfield to airfield, and even the simple pleasures enjoyed on leave.
