This book starts on the ... groundbreaking events which occurred years before the Wright Brothers had flown their Wright Flyer airplane at Kitty Hawk he describes the character of the people involved and why they really achieved what they did. Many became airplane manufacturers because they had to determination to go through the practise of a plodding hard knock regime composed of periods of rigidly conducted intensively observed interludes of trial and error.
It was a revelation to discover that Mr A.V. Roe had more than his fair share of opposition because of his coming from Manchester he was forcibly evicted from Brooklands and virtually blackballed by the geofascist anti English London Establishment that is until he produced his first masterpiece the famous AVRO 504. If you enjoy reading about flight don't miss this incredible book.
I have read snippets from this book which I enjoyed. I learnt a lot of history from the bits I reaad. It is my aim to read all of it in the near future. A very interesting history lesson I look forward to.
