Description

Also briefly covered are the aircraft that flew with Duesenberg engines, these are the Gallaudet D-1, Orenco Type "A" . If you love the Duesenberg/Miller era of great racing engines, this is a must have book.

Also briefly covered are the aircraft that flew with Duesenberg engines, these are the Gallaudet D-1, Orenco Type "A", Lanzius L-1 and the LUSAC 11/21 series of aircraft. If you like aviation history, especially topics on nearly forgotten engines and aircraft, this book is for you. Very enjoyable and informative read. There was overlap between Duesenberg's racing car engines and aircraft engines. Much in here that I didn't know, and I've read a lot about Duesenberg.

The Duesenberg Straight-8 engine was produced from 1921 to 1937 and sold in Duesenberg automobiles. Fred and August Duesenberg got their start building experimental racing engines which achieved a great deal of success. Among their accomplishments are wins at the Indianapolis 500, the 1921 French Grand Prix and speed records at the Bonneville Salt Flats.

Until I noticed this title in my Amazon recommendations I had no idea that Duesenberg made aircraft engines. This is a very well written and illustrated book, most of the pictures coming from Duesenberg advertisements and technicial manuals. The text covers the history of the Duesenberg brothers, Fred and Augie, their automotive background and their five year involvement in aviation. During this period they developed four unique "walking beam" engines and worked with the Italian firm of Bugatti to develop the "King-Bugatti" engine for American production during World War One. This development work was done at the Duesenberg plant in Elizabeth, New Jersey.
Also briefly covered are the aircraft that flew with Duesenberg engines, these are the Gallaudet D-1, Orenco Type "A", Lanzius L-1 and the LUSAC 11/21 series of aircraft.
If you like aviation history, especially topics on nearly forgotten engines and aircraft, this book is for you. Very enjoyable and informative read.

If you love the Duesenberg/Miller era of great racing engines, this is a must have book. The book is small and paperback, but the photos are great and the research is fantastic. There was overlap between Duesenberg's racing car engines and aircraft engines. Much in here that I didn't know, and I've read a lot about Duesenberg. Price is so low, this book is a must buy for car or aviation collectors.

For me the book was very interesting - I learned a great deal from this slim volume. I am beginning to run out of things to read about on this subject and, admittedly, the topic is obscure but the book is well done.

Enjoyable read on a series of engines I didn't know exsisted. Good background on the relationship with Miller and Bugatti. The illustrations are good. Recommended if you are a piston hound with an interest esoteric or unknown aircraft engines.

A well researched tech book. I love the intermingling of auto and aviation developments. The ability of America to respond technically to changing times fascinates me. The USA pre-computer proves more impressive the more I research.

OK
An interesting bit of history of an aspect of the Duesenberg brothers' business of which very little seems to
exist. Their automobiles are famous {justly so; think of a 320 hp SJ compared with a Model A at 40 hp}. The aero engines were ambitious but less successful. Essentially, they responded to the demand for aero engines
arising in 1917 from the start of WW 1, but were outclassed by the Liberty and the massive backing it
received from the US government. Instead, they were assigned the Bugatti U-16 to develop and produce.
Ettore Bugatti sold this engine to the US, and it was one of the worst engines ever. It was two 8-cyl engines
geared to one propellor, and required a major redesign in order to make it stay together. Bugatti had a reputation for building good cars. I think the U-16 was based on the Royale 8-cyl auto engine; if so, my
opinion of Ettore's engineering skills takes a big hit. Not even the Duesenbergs could save it.

This is a good read for those having interests in engine history.
