One Merlin makes a Spitfire, two a Mosquito and four a Lancaster. Engines made in America, Russia and Germany could boast the same versatility and are described here in detail.

A vast number of super illustrations make Victor Bingham's book a feast of visual information and an essential item for anybody even remotely interested in aeroplane engines. - PILOT .
