Prof. Dr.-Ing. Kollmann is one of the most important aeronautical engineers in the story of piston aeroengine development in Germany in WWII. In 12 years, Dr.-Ing. Kollmann progressed from the role of senior engineer to chief engineer of the aeroengine design department in Daimler-Benz. This book is an historical record of his own engineering work in developing high performance piston aeroengines. The original document that Dr.-Ing. Kollmann wrote in 1947 is presented here in English with extensive additional material by the authors.
