"Graham White has written an engaging, elucidating and entertaining history of Pratt & Whitney's last significant radial piston aero engine, the R-4360 Wasp Major. This book is everything one could hope for in a design history, and those of us with a bent toward the nuts and bolts of technology history will welcome it."

"In addition to the well written text, this book is extensively illustrated and filled with photographs. However, following the structure of the text, these illustrations beautifully complement the written word and make this book into an excellent reference."
