This follow-up book to WO Bentley Rotary Aero Engines By Tom Dine, is quite a lot smaller and “simpler” than the previous one, is on the one hand, and among other things, a synopsis of the Bentley Rotary in the latter days of WWI and on the other hand adds the findings of new research conducted since. (Readers of the BDC’s magazine will have seen some of that material in Dine’s articles there.) In other words, the new book advances the body of knowledge, so no matter what all you have read already, here you will discover more bits—and not just about the Bentley Rotary and its Clerget and Daimler versions but also about tanks (who knew that tanks have a “sex”) and motorcars and even a little about helicopters and certain ships.
