Don Berliner, a prolific Aviation author, puts pen to paper once again to provide us with a definitive overview of the most important, influential, and iconic racing aircraft of the last century. The book looks at the incredible variety, growth, and rapid expansion of this area of Aviation design and production. Individual events are relayed which deal with teams of designers, often equipped with a lot more ideas than money, making wild dashes for the chequered flag and fame. The excitement of this endeavour is translated here into vivid prose. Supplemented throughout by extensive illustrations (over 200 images) this piece of work is sure to appeal to enthusiasts of the genre interested in seeing the most select racing Aircraft of all time consolidated into one volume. Berliner continues with characteristic style and ease of delivery, adding to his expanding library of acclaimed Pen and Sword publications.
