The History of the Rolls-Royce RB211 Turbofan Engine
This very well produced book covers the development of Rolls-Royce's famed RB211 engine, from when it was just a gleam in the Design Department's eye, up to its entry into service.
There is a lot of technical detail, the author having been much involved with the development process, but there is also much of interest to anyone with an interest in aviation.
324 pages plus a 6 page foldout section. 228 largely colour photos and B&W & colour technical drawings, plus charts. A4 format paperback.
