The year was 1903, and America was eager for new ideas and inventions. Across the country, inventors worked steadily as two brothers were putting the finishing touches on their gas engine powered glider and another gentleman was testing his automobile in the suburbs of Detroit. In Springfield, Massachusetts, two men were producing a small robust motorcycle called the Indian. Meanwhile, in Wisconsin, Bill Harley and the Davidson brothers were determined to create a more dependable and powerful bike. They accomplished this task and their first motorcycle was paid for before it was even completed in 1903.

It's 1901 and a guy named Harley has an idea. Put an engine on a bicycle. What? Outside his door, carts are still pulled by horses and autos are a rare sight. It's 1908 and a Harley-Davidson motorcycle sets a record by getting 188 miles to a gallon of gas. It's 1909 and the company introduces something new to its line: a V-twin cylinder engine. Fast forward to the 21st century, and the technical innovation hasn't stopped. But there's a lot more than just choppers in the mix. Examples: The Harley-Davidson racing team adds a seventeen-year-old girl to the roster. 250,000 people help celebrate Harley's 100th anniversary in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. And a museum devoted to the company's products opens up. Clearly, this is a company unlike any other. How did Harley do it? How did it go from making motorcycles to creating a Harley experience that puts hundreds of thousands of people aged sixteen to one hundred on the road traveling to events each year where they can meet company officials and other Harley riders? That's what this book is all about. In addition, the author offers special features that include a look at the colorful people associated with Harley, interesting trivia, a Harley-Davidson time line, a focus on products, a look at how the company treats its workers, what its detractors have to say, and where the company is headed. Honda may match Harley-Davidson for quality and perhaps innovation, but no one has matched the company for its ability to create 'buzz marketing' and turn casual riders into unofficial sales people. Harley-Davidson, it turns out, isn't just in the motorcycle business. As its mission statement points out, it's in the business of fulfilling dreams. This book documents how Harley-Davidson is a rare company in other ways: Its loyal workforce, for one thing, is guided by principles like trust and respect for the individual. For another, the company has made a superb effort to keep jobs in the United States, when it would be far cheaper and easier to use offshore labor. Teetering on the brink of bankruptcy in the early 1980s, Harley has roared back to capture the hearts of riders the world over, including the million-plus members of the Harley Owners Group (members are known, naturally, as HOGs). Harley-Davidson—a company that changed, and is changing, the world.

The Messerschmitt Bf 110 entered war service on 1st September 1939 with the 'C-1' variant. By the end of 1940, by which time the type had fought in the Polish campaign, the various campaign on the European mainland, and the Battle of Britain, it had gone though various changes and roles, and had developed as far as the 'E' variant. Authors John Vasco and Fernando Estanislau have already done comprehensive work on the many variants of the Bf 110 prior to undertaking this new project, and have brought their extensive knowledge of the aircraft to bear on producing this work on the 'C', 'D' and 'E' variants.The book shows the changes within each variant, starting with a lead-in detailing the changes from the pre-war 'B' variant to the 'C'.The many sub-variants of the 'C' are detailed, and the 'D' variant covers the 'Dackelbauch' long range fighter version and the 'D-3' variant which sought to provide extra range by way of auxiliary fuel tanks under the wings rather than the cumbersome 'Dackelbauch'. The 'E' shows the move to the provision of heating in the cockpit for the crew, as well as the 'E' reconnaissance version and the rarely seen Bf 110 Cs and Es that were converted for duties towing the large Luftwaffe gliders. As well as using well-known photographs to illustrate the many facets of the design and development of the aircraft, the authors have also been able to call upon many previously unpublished photographs. Fernando Estanislau's excellent artwork considerably enhances the work. This book is a feast for the Luftwaffe enthusiast, and with the recent introduction of new Bf 110 plastic model kits, it is a 'must-have' for the aviation modeller seeking to identify the exact details of any sub-variant from the 'C' to the 'E'.

Harley-Davidson: words that evoke the open American road and the 'Made in America' tradition like no others. The sweeping chopper handlebars, the distinctive throaty 'potato potato' roar of the engine and the unmistakable logo are all emblems recognized the world over. This book expertly ties together the mechanical evolution of the Harley's engines – from the earliest motorized pedal bicycles to the iconic heavyweight twin cylinder V-engines we know and love today – and the social history of the brand's phenomenal rise in the twentieth century, as innovative survivor of the Great Depression, supplier of the military during both World Wars and enduring symbol of freedom and rebellion in movies such as 'Easy Rider'. It is fully illustrated with pictures of the bikes and those who have ridden them as well as beautiful examples of H-D's distinctive design aesthetic in advertising and collectibles.
