Made on the Isle of Wight: From Torpedo Boat to Spacecraft by David Walliams

With a focus on invention, innovation and record-breaking, local author David L Williams explores the many products of the island’s industry, along with designers and engineers, and the workforce that created these fascinating inventions.
