The Power Behind the Jets takes the Rolls-Royce story onward from 1945. After the war, Rolls-Royce used its proven skills of excellence in deign and manufacture to exploit the growth prosperity of the world.



By the late 1950s, Rolls-Royce realised that it must win business in the USA if it was to remain in the front rank of aero engine suppliers. By 1971 Rolls-Royce had been forced into receivership and the company was effectively nationalised.



The 1980s bought a new style of government to Britain, epitomised by the return of many nationalised industries and companies to private ownership. In this environment Rolls-Royce flourished and this second volume on the history if the company ends with Rolls-Royce floating on the Stock Exchange and returning triumphantly to the private sector.
