Fully revised edition of the best-selling classic book that documented Donald Campbell's attempts to raise the world water-speed record in his 'Bluebird' jet-propelled boat to 300mph - Written by the man who was with Campbell throughout all the preparations and the final attempt that ended in tragedy - Of great interest to all those that remember when Britain broke record after record - and when we once held the air, land and water speed records simultaneously - A book that recalls the triumphs of British engineering in the face of technological barriers - and not a computer in sight! - A remarkable story of the courage and heroism of one man that united the nation - Dramatic photographs, including rare ones never seen in any previous book, have been digitally enhanced for superb reproduction: close-ups of 'Bluebird' and shots of record attempts at full speed - Includes a foreword by Leo Villa,
