Top Customer Reviews
country is based on what they have been taught or told - so George Stephenson tends to get the credit. This book by Adrian Vaughan opens
our eyes to the true picture.
In fact Peto, Brassey, Brunel and Locke are more worthy recipients of such gratitude. Though, Brassey and Locke have already been immortalised, so too has Brunel very recently, in the definitive biography by the author of this excellent work (long awaited) on Peto. He, with his associates Betts and Brassey, created so many of the marvels of Victorian engineering construction that still survive, and indeed will outlive us and many future generations.
This book has all the benchmarks of this accomplished author: it is well researched, and fluently and entertainingly written. No serious appreciation of raiway development can be had without a copy.
