Volume 1 covers the story of the racing (1946–57) and Volume 2 covers the 19 individual cars and the men who raced them (1948–58).
The beginnings of HWM (the initials of the garage Hersham and Walton Motors) and the two key characters behind the team — smooth, sanguine George Abecassis and mercurial, parsimonious John Heath.
Racing the single-seaters around Europe (1950–53) with Stirling Moss, Lance Macklin and Peter Collins among the drivers.
Switching to sports cars (1954–57), competing in Britain and across Europe, sometimes beating the big names.
The individual histories of all the HWMs made are told in full, complete with their specifications and ownership chains.
Coverage includes biographies of many of the fascinating and poignant people associated with HWM.
Packed with superb period photos sourced from libraries and private collections all over the world.
