Looks at the history, development and application of piston aero engines, from those used in. .The book is divided into two sections of 4 chapters each on development and design. The book is sufficiently if not lavishly illustrated.

Looks at the history, development and application of piston aero engines, from those used in the Wright brothers' pioneering aircraft early this century to the small machines which power microlights today. This is not simply a technical textbook listing various engines, but instead discusses the principles involoved in the workings and evolution of these power plants, chronicles their many different applications and ponders what the future may hold.

This is the history, development and application of piston aero engines, from those used in the Wright Brother's pioneering aircraft at the beginning of the century to the small machines which power microlights today. In addition to listing the various engines it also discusses the principles involved in the working and evolution of these power plants. If you're looking for development stories related to specific engines, you'll be disappointed with this volume. However, there are ancedotes that make the reading a little more interesting.

Gunston, Bill Development of Piston Aero Engines. ISBN 13: 9781852606190. This was a time of experiment and adventure, in which it soon became clear that what was needed was an engine that could give ample power but within reasonable limits of weight and bulk.

Comments to eBook The Development of Piston Aero Engines: From the Wrights to Microlights : A Century of Evolution and Still a Power to Be Reckoned With
Kirizan
Good solid, one volume introduction to the aircraft piston engine.
As a reference book, I strongly feel that this needs to be a standard reference within my library. This purchase is to replace a copy that was stolen.
The book is divided into two sections of 4 chapters each on development and design. The book is sufficiently if not lavishly illustrated.
If you're looking for development stories related to specific engines, you'll be disappointed with this volume. However, there are ancedotes that make the reading a little more interesting.
The writing is descriptive, approachable and easy to understand.
The bibliography is interesting in that Mr. Gunston used the books that have been considered to have set the standards on this subject over the years.
I won't 5 star this or my recommendations below. Too the best of my knowledge, there is no single introduction to the aircraft piston engine that is comprehensive or inexpensive. The closest may be "The Power to Fly", which is rare, expensive, and decidedly "pro-British" in it's stance.
I do recommend that following two volumes be purchased as companion volumes as part of an aviation library with coverage of aircraft piston engines:
1. Aircraft Propulsion: "A Review of the Evolution of Aircraft Piston Engines" by C. Fayette Taylor
Although dated, from a technical stand point this book provides a excellent treatise of engine development from a then contemporary standpoint
2. "History of Aircraft Piston Engines: Aircraft Piston Engines from the Manly Balzer to the Continental Tiara" by Herschel Smith
This book provides a overview of design as well as a survey of specific engines divided into groupings of era, size and type of engine. There is also a chapter on the "oddballs"
This is not a critical review. This is an excellent book and I recommend it.
Arilak
Typical Gunston. I really admire his well written and understandable style. This book has made a valuable contribution to our understanding of technology in general and aero engines in particular.
Wafi
Fantastic. Technical yet readable. A gem.
Jugore
excellent naval action
Jogrnd
Great book, great photos.
Jaiarton
This book is poorly written and badly illustrated. There are few engine diagrams and mostly photographs. It is far too short for the topic or the price. And, he can't decide if he is explaining engine design for beginners or writing history. However, if you have every other book on the suject, then there is plenty of fragmented but useful factual material in the book. If you are wanting to come up to speed on the topic, it is a waste of money.
Vozilkree
A great book, but unfortunately it is out of stock fot several monthes. It's a pitty.
