Books I and II
Their are two parts to the total story of the Titanic and Hindenburg as written by Kenneth M. Price, Jr.
Book I -- The Rise and Stall of the Piston Engine
The Rise and Stall of the Piston Engine is the first part of the story. It was written for the purpose of illustrating and scientifically unraveling the history and “evolution” of our present day automotive piston engines. In the process, piston engines are revealed as the chosen mechanism in spite of hundreds of better engine designs and fuel types that performed superior and consumed much less fuel.
This book exposes the petroleum piston engine’s unexplained rise to the top of automobile propulsion mechanisms for what it was; the culmination of an objective to create a demand for gasoline at uncompromising levels. In addition it details the phasing out of steam locomotives and electric propulsion solely for the purpose of switching transportation mechanisms to ones which were petroleum powered.
