The Magic of a Name

The Rolls-Royce Story (Part Two) The Power Behind The Jets 1945-1987

Peter Pugh

The 1950s and 1960s were pivotal in the development of Rolls-Royce, consolidating its reputation as the world's premier builder of both luxury cars and aircraft engines. This second volume of the company's history tells the story of how it took a lead in jet technology and expanded its sales in these first decades after the war before a financial crisis resulted in nationalization in 1971, and its subsequent recovery during the 1970s and 1980s.
