Sea Hawk - From the Cockpit by Michael J. Doust
Published by Ad Hoc Publications, 2007
One of very few books on the Sea Hawk, at 136 pages a good read and good value. Consists primarily of recollections from pilots and maintainers along with some historical information. Lots of photographs and colour profiles. Definitely worth getting.
Warpaint No.29 - Hawker Sea Hawk by Tony Buttler
Published by Hall Park Books Ltd., 2001
The usual Warpaint fare with development and service history and a good selection of colour profiles and photographs with a smattering of detail photos too.
