Product Description

The Development History of BMW Automobiles: 1918-1932, published to commemorate 75 years of the BMW Automobile, is the first thorough exploration of the exceptionally varied period leading up to the production of the first BMW cars. It examines the company’s national and international links as they took shape in the overall context of contemporary social and political events?a challenge for the authors, since there are scarcely any surviving witnesses to these developments, which took place at least three-quarters of a century ago.

Lengthy and thorough research was rewarded by discoveries if hitherto unsuspected material that casts fresh light on one of the decisive phases in the history of the Bayerische Motoren Werke and enables many exciting developments to be explained for the first time. The authors strived not only to narrate these events from a past era in an informative and entertaining manner, but have included many illustrations, often never previously published, which help to communicate the atmosphere of this era and the progress of the company vividly and understandably to their readers and to students of the subject.
