Gunston writes about the beginings of the jet age, using British, French and American bombers to discuss the challenges in engineering and manufacturing in moving from ~300kt piston aircraft to 600kt and up modern aircraft. He covers all three of the British V Bombers, all of the US strategic bombers through the B-1 and oddities like the French Mirage IV and the A5 Vigilante. Gunston discusses in some detail the engineering choices that were made early in the jet age when it wasn't clear what even the general shape of large jets would be and talks about the engineering organizations that built them.
