Vivien Whites’s book on Sir Barnes Wallis – A Commemoration of his Life and Career has been reviewed by Paul Bailey in the latest edition (July-August 2020) of the Brooklands Bulletin. He concludes that it is a “good balance between obvious affection for the subject of the book, and sound objectivity …. and is a worthwhite addition to any Brooklands book shelf.”
