Travail de vrai historien remarquable ! Merci à l'auteur d'avoir sorti Louis Wagner de l'oubli, ce pilote émérite et complet dont j'ai entretenu la tombe un temps il y a une vingtaine d'années. J'attendais un bel ouvrage bien complet. C'est le cas !

Detailed work on a largely overlooked driver whose career extended from the 'heroic' age to the vintage era. Nicely presented with hundreds of period photographs. Book fills a significant gap in the history of early racing.
