Vikings at Waterloo


Ignore the title, which will become clear if you read this book.

This is the story of the wartime work on the Whittle jet engine undertaken by Rover Motor Co. at its 'Shadow Factory' at Barnoldswick in Lancashire from 1941 to 1943.

Also covered is the story of the engine before and after these dates.

A semi-technical book, but very interesting, especially as regards relations between Rover and later Rolls-Royce, and Frank Whittle and both of them.

131 x A5 format pages. Numerous B&W photos, drawings, plans and mpas. Paperback.
