JH Clark and Max Millar produced cutaway drawings since the days of World War II, often producing those of Luftwaffe aircraft after studying their wrecks. Gunston lovingly describes their work and some gems are laid about for those to discover. Gunston also notes their rare errors — some due to understandable mistakes on wreckage inspection but some inexplicable perspective drawing mistakes. Over three dozen aircraft cutaway drawings and a handful of engine cutaway drawings fill this book with the marvels of flight engineering during World War II.

Gunston’s book is a joy for an aviation fan and best enjoyed with a cool drink and a magnifying glass for observing the details.
