5.0 out of 5 stars A stunningly good book., 6 Oct 2007
By 
D. Mackenzie (Edinburgh) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
This review is from: British Secret Projects: Hypersonics, Ramjets and Missiles (Hardcover)
Intensively researched and beautifully presented it manages to open up a vast amount of newly declassified material.
The book is A4 format and heavily illustrated with technical drawings, colour and monochrome photos and photo realistic electronically generated images. The well written text is dense in fact, the technical contents are excellent but well presented so they are not a barrier.
I think this is one of those book that I'll keep returning to over the years and decades.

4.0 out of 5 stars Boys adventure book for adults, 29 Sep 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: British Secret Projects: Hypersonics, Ramjets and Missiles (Hardcover)
Let's face it although we are really interested in the technical specs, what we really want to do is fly these things and this is the nearest most of us will ever get. Great pictures as well

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than expected, 30 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: British Secret Projects: Hypersonics, Ramjets and Missiles (Hardcover)
I bought this book primarily for the details of the proposed hypersonic aircraft that never made it, and also as the fourth book in the 'British Secret Projects' series, I thought that I had better get the whole set. I expected to be bored by the history of missiles and ramjets, but actually it was fascinating. The book is amazingly well researched, with a very well written narrative and some fascinating illustrations. Highly recommended.
