Whatever happened to Maybach and Horch? And a dozen other once flourishing Continental car manufacturers? Here Lord Montagu has taken, for the first time, representative German, Austrian, Dutch, Italian and Swiss makes, irrespective of period or competition interest, and told the story of their evolution, their tie-ups both national and international, and the reasons for their demise. He explains the anatomy of failure as often political and sociological rather than purely financial.

In the past British writers have tended to deal only with models, that were actually sold in Britain, and to review them in terms of the Britsh market, whereas Lord Montagu has placed them in the true perspective of their country of origin.

Hardback in good condition with clean dust wrapper, now sealed and protected in a clear cover.
