I enjoyed this memoir of the British author's childhood and early adult life, when he worked as an engineer in the British aviation industry. The book was written in the 1950s and reflects upon his life up to about 1940, with some asides about his work for the Admiralty during the Second World War. During the 1920s Nevil Shute mainly worked on a British dirigible, the R100. This lighter-than-air craft made a successsful jouney to Canada. In the 1930s Shute was involved in founding an aviation company, Oxford Airspeed. One of its models was used as a training craft during the Second World War. Shute reflects on the trials that beset an entrepeneur, especially on the difficulty of raising venture capital.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
