This review is from: Silver Arrows in Camera: A Photographic Portrait of the Mercedes-Benz and Auto Union Grand Prix Teams 1934-39 (Hardcover)
Pritchard really knows his subject - VERY well researched, and this more than holds its own against Chris Nixon's excellent tomes on the subject. The colour photos are very illuminating, especially re Mercedes' different grill colours, etc. and are very rare. A pity that so few have survived, but understandable given that they were taken in the early days of colour photography. A wealth of b/w images, many of them unpublished in other reference works, more than make up for this. My SECOND COPY of this, to replace a damaged original. The book for the serious enthusiast.
