Reviews of Le Mans: The Official History 1949–59

“If you’re interested in 1950s Le Mans 24 Hours races, then look no further. This is an extremely comprehensive review of the period which includes some great images, all the results and plenty more.”
Motor Sport

“The author is clearly passionate about the race he regards as the greatest in the world and his superbly illustrated book contains meticulously compiled and detailed accounts of each of the eleven races of the period… it’s the fascinating race-by-race inside stories of individual teams, cars, entrants and drivers that form the bulk of the book, make for absorbing reading and results in the most in-depth account that this reviewer has yet seen of what was arguably the most revolutionary decade in the history of the Le Mans 24 Hours… fans of the race and motorsport historians in general will find this book, and its companion volumes, indispensible.”

“Perversely, it is best to start this book from the back. Among the brilliant data-fest of appendices are reasons for retirement, marque and driver records, fastest laps, margins of victory, and even pseudonyms. Add to that the stats with each chapter and you’ll barely notice that there are also a bunch of words and some brilliant photos.”

“Far superior than anything else that we have read on the subject.”
