The Dream Machine


Product Description
Product Details


"[A] book that takes off like a novel and flies like a well-sourced historical investigation." --Gretel C. Kovach, The San Diego Union-Tribune
"What makes The Dream Machine interesting is the light it sheds on Washington's 'permanent government, ' the lobbyists and consultants and bureaucrats and contractors... One of the lessons of Whittle's book is that no one misses a chance to swim in the giant pool of money and power that is the nation's capital, where the defense industry is the biggest fish of all." --Matthew Continetti, The Washington Post Book World
"A wonderful combination of personal drama, technological detective story, military history, and . . . a valuable and engrossing book that will be read for many years to come." --James Fallows, The Atlantic Monthly
"The definitive biography of this embattled bird's troubled development and initial deployment. Whittle weaves an engrossing tale as much about people as about this complex machine." --Lee Gaillard, Raleigh News Observer
"Like the helicopter-airplane that tantalized generals, engineers, and pilots for decades, The Dream Machine is also an irresistible hybrid--a cross between The Soul of a New Machine and Black Hawk Down." --Brad Matsen
"The long, costly, and bloody tale of this hybrid bird, which has taken thirty years . . . to go from blueprints to battlefield. . . . A great yarn for those in love with military gee-whiz technology and aviation." --Mark Thompson, Washington Monthly
"A gripping tale of the development, near-death, and final redemption of one of the most controversial and fascinating aircraft ever flown." --Air & Space magazine
