I'm a little biased, so I can't give the book a fair rating. It contains a few quotes from my grandfather.

Avro Arrow - Shutting Down The National Dream :: Still stuns Oct. 9 2012
By Michael Haller - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The story of the Avro Arrow provides a rare insight into one of the greatest aviation tragedies of the 20th Century. It didn't take a flight safety board investigation to determine the causes of failure for what was arguably one of the greatest aircraft ever devised and built. The 'crash' of the program, at the hands of ill-informed leaders and policy makers wielding political machetes, didn't simply result in a monumental embarrassment of the first magnitude, but a blindingly far more significant strategic loss that would well have contributed to defence of North America and the NATO nations during the Cold War. Indeed the true winners in the loss of the Arrow were the Soviets and their cohorts - they could not have scripted it better themselves.

This is an exceptional insightful story of what actually happened through the eyes of many of the people who lived through it. Recommended reading. Prof Michael Haller
