From the cover: Stanley Hooker joined the Bristol Aeroplane Company in 1949 and tugged a rather reluctant company into the jet age, determined to give real competition to Rolls-Royce. So successful was he that in 1966 Rolls-Royce decided the best thing to do was to spend 63. 6 million pounds and buy its rival. By this time there was scarcely a single modern British aero-engine for which Hooker had not been responsible.

Introduction by: Lord Keith of Castleacre

Very Good in Good Dust Wrapper. A little rubbing to the edges of the dust wrapper, which is sunned at the spine, with a nick to the top corner of the upper panel. Text complete, clean and tight.
