CONTENTS : Author's preface Early struggles Two great wars The all-action 1920s Not only motor cycles Powers of survival Motor cycle production ends The firm of Douglas has a long and chequered history. From uncertain beginnings at the turn of the century, the company managed to survive to the present day, though it has not made motor cycles for many years. No marque was more ubiquitous. Where motor cycles were to be found, there you would find Douglas. They rose to inevitable peaks and yet staggered repeatedly on the edge of extinction. But the factory which brought motor cycle fame to Bristol demonstrated an amazing capacity for survival, producing an enormous number of machines of all kinds, some which are still considered as classics in their own right. Now the enthralling story is told in a lively and readable fashion and accompanied by a wealth of fascinating photographs.
