A detailed biography of a forgotten engineer.
on 8 January 2015
Armstrong was a very important figure in the history of engineering who does seem to have been forgotten. This book covers his life and achievements in considerable detail. While interesting, I found it heavy going at times, with rather excessive quotes from letters etc, and too much detail about periferal events. However, over all I am glad I read it, and really hope to be able to go to visit Armstrong's house Cragside within the near future.
