Product Description

Beginning with an account of Sir Harry Ricardo’s family background and education at Rugby and Cambridge, this illustrated, revised and expanded 2nd edition of John Reynolds’ definitive biography traces Ricardo’s work through six decades. Ricardo’s efforts on behalf of companies such as Rolls-Royce, Vauxhall, Bentley, Bristol Napier, Citroen and Fiat led to innumerable advances in the performance of military and civilian engines. A newly-written epilogue brings the story up to date with some recent developments in the Ricardo Group – the international company that still bears Sir Harry’s name.
