5.0 out of 5 stars Gripping read, 9 Feb 2013
A first class book for anyone interested in motor racing during the imediate post war period. A story of small underfunded british teams pitting their technical wits against the large well organised German and Italian teams. All told by a Polish mechanic who understandably was not the biggest fan of the Germans.

Quite a good read but not a patch on the Alf Francis biography.Lacked detailed technical information and the stories of relationships between drivers , mechanics, owners, and sponsers.
Jaguar XK 120 Explored, inc 2500 Original Drawings by Bernard Viart
Contains valuable information to aid the restoration of a 120. Some unnessary padding, period road tests etc., and not quite as lavishly produced as the magnificent "anatomy of a cult object", but if as I am you are restoring a 120 you have to have it.
