Victor F. Bingham does a generally good job of describing several major WW2 aero engines in "Major Piston Aero-Engines of World War I. However, the book is not perfect. I had looked forward to the arrival of this book for several months. On examination it has so many major factual errors that it cannot be taken seriously even as light reading. I simply cannot understand how a book this shoddy could be published.

Victor F. Bingham does a generally good job of describing several major WW2 aero engines in "Major Piston Aero-Engines of World War II." However, the book is not perfect. The book's strengths include: an introduction ("Historical Background") that touches on the development of just about every major piston engine (and some minor engines) from the end of World War I to the beginning of World War II; strong technical descriptions of all the engines; lots of charts, technical drawings, and cutaway illustrations; coverage of several key piston aero engines including the Allison V-1710, Bristol Hercules, Bristol Centaurus, BMW 801, Daimler-Benz DB 601, Junkers Jumo 211, Napier Sabre, Pratt & Whitney R-1830 Twin Wasp, P&W R-2800 Double Wasp, Rolls-Royce Merlin, RR Griffon, Wright R-1820 Cyclone 9, Wright R-2600 Cyclone 14, Gnome-Rhone 14, and Hispano-Suiza 12; a chapter on Soviet engines; some useful definitions distributed throughout the text; and a strong bibliography.

Weaknesses include: an emphasis on U.S. and British engines, with historical backgrounds on German, Soviet, and French engines lacking; a complete lack of coverage of Japanese or Italian engines; descriptions of different German engine models that are skimpy and confusing; precious space taken up describing aircraft applications that can be found in other books on WW2 aircraft; and some factual errors (for example, on page 82 the picture caption reads "A Daimler-Benz DB605-powered Messerschmitt Bf 109F..." and the illustration caption on page 78 reads "Daimler-Benz DB601 powered Messerschmitt Bf 109G-4").

Overall however as a reference on several key engines of World War II Victor Bingham generally does a good job and, thus, this book may be worth owning.
Mitynarit Mitynarit
Generally informative, author does have a bias for sleeve valve English engines, but overall informative and well documented with info on engines that are not that well known such as the Hispano Suiza 12y series.
Vispel Vispel
Good coverage of American, British, and German engines - the rest get little (Russian/French) or none (Japanese).
The lack of detail on the R-3550 is a disappointment.

I had looked forward to the arrival of this book for several months. On examination it has so many major factual errors that it cannot be taken seriously even as light reading. I simply cannot understand how a book this shoddy could be published. The erroneous information is easily researchable in many reference texts and on the internet. The author, editor and publisher should be ashamed of this substandard publication.
