What this book gives you is the history of Supermarine and the workings of many of it's design team and work force.
The front cover is a misconception stating the Career of Joe Smith, there is not one chapter dedicated to the man.
If you want to find out about this great man this is not the book to that will tell you.
This book failed for me on two accounts.Maybe I was wrong in expecting a biographical study of this long neglected designer, but what is supplied is not to my mind anything like a biography and I was left knowing as little about the man as before I had the book.I was also left with not knowing any further insight into his aircraft designs, so sorry but Joe Smiths life is still there to be written.
