Some of the most significant engineering and technological breakthroughs of the 20th century centered on piston aero engine development from 1920 to 1957. This Book explains in detailed yet easy-to-understand terms how piston-powered radial-engine airliners advanced rapidly from having fabric-covered fuselages with wooden wings in the “Roaring Twenties” to fully pressurized, all-metal, 350-mph, 80-passenger “Queen of the Skies” in less than three decades! Hardbound, approx. 216 pages with many full colored images.
