The author of this book, Dr W. F. Hilton, has been an enthusiastic worker in the field of high speed flow for more than twenty years, and has had unusually wide experience of high‐speed problems. Indeed, the reviewer believes that Dr Hilton, in his work on propellers with high tip speeds, was the first person to obtain photographs of shock waves generated by an aeronautical body: shock waves generated by missiles were, of course, well known. Any work on high speed flow from his pen must, therefore, be examined with great interest and anticipation.
