The second in a series of books on Aston Martin which deals with the period after the second-world war. Although the Company managed to survive the war, Gordon Sutherland didn't have enough funds to put into production the promising "Atom" prototype. David Brown was the next enthusiast to take the name forward, along with Lagonda, which he had also purchased. These were exciting times for Aston Martin which started with the 2-Litre - which evolved into the stylish DB2 - and the famous Italian-designed DB4. Next came the super-car era and the DB5, made famous by Agent 007, James Bond, and this was followed by the DB6, now more of a grand tourer than a sports car.
