This review is from: Shooting Star: The Life of Richard Seaman (Hardcover)
Richard Seaman was the only Englishman to join the mighty Mercedes-Benz "Silver Arrows" in the 1930s. He was a curious character, aloof, somewhat narcissistic, rather aristocratic, but a passionate and keen sportsman.
Nixon charts Seaman's family background, his meteoric rise within the sport, and his tragically shortened career with Mercedes. He is not afraid to explore the difficult political situation Seaman found himself in and is prepared to be fairly critical of a rather difficult character.
The photography in this book is just as good as the text, with some truly startling images.
Highly recommended.
