Rolls-Royce: The Magic of a Name (Paperback)

Quick Overview

The Magic of a Name tells the story of the first forty years of Britain's most prestigious manufacturer - Rolls-Royce.

Beginning with the historic meeting in 1904 of Henry Royce and C.S. Rolls, and the birth in 1906 of the legendary Silver Ghost, Peter Pugh tells a story of genius, skill and dedication that gave the world cars and aero-engines unrivaled in their excellence. In 1915, 100 years ago, Royce produced the first of many aero engines, the Eagle, which proved itself in battle in the First World War.
