Donald Campbell: 300+ A Speed Odyssey: His Life with Bluebird


David de Lara  Tonia Bern-Campbell


Donald Campbell was the only son of the legendary Sir Malcolm Campbell, famous in the inter-war years as the ultimate record breaker with nine land- and four water-speed records. This richly illustrated book provides a unique insight into the life of a brave and intense man obsessed with doing better than his father and flying the flag for Britain. With new and rare material, it reveals the record attempts made with the Bluebirds, played out against the barren backdrop of Lake Eyre in Australia and the verdant hills surrounding Coniston Water in the English Lake District.
