A fascinating history of Britain's postwar aircraft projects and the advanced technologies they explored. This book gives detail to the many innovative and exceptional prototypes designed and developed by the aircraft giants of Britain and then describes the consequences of cancellations because of budget reductions. The end result was the loss of Britain's leading part in aircraft design, then the bankruptcy of its pioneering aircraft companies, and then the loss of all of those young technologists who would have been carried on their country's pioneering traditions in aeronautical design. A well-written book with lessons for all of us.

This book deals with the post war aviation industries of Great Britain, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. Due to changes in political views, government incompetence and budget cuts some very wonderful aircraft were halted, cancelled or destroyed. A few survived in altered format or were revived later, but the main point of the book is the loss in research and knowledge in aviation that was largely unnecessary and needless as those who didn't have a grasp of what was going on meddled around and ended up costing not only in the financial sense, but scientifically as well. A good read, but rather depressing if you're an aviation enthusiast.
