My Work on Second World War Technology

It is my goal to study, understand and publicize the staggering technological development in piston aircraft engines during the Second World War. Whilst jets and rockets have captured much of the popular appeal of the period; none of these later developments actually played any significant strategic part in the course of the war – their numbers were far too small, and their introduction into the campaigns much too late.

I have given detailed technical presentations about engine technology in the Second World War to two major Formula One motor-racing companies, as well as other organisations concerned with the historical aspects.
