Description

A celebration of mankind's quest for supremacy on the land, at sea and in the air over the past century. The text covers the period from the first Paris-Bordeaux road race in 1895 to the most recent attempt on the land speed record, from Orville and Wilbur Wright's first powered flight in 1903 to Neil Armstrong's moonwalk in 1969 and the Mir space station, from the Blue Riband transatlantic liners to the first solo, non-stop circumnavigation of the world, and from steam locomotives to Bullet trains.show more
