MG by McComb has happily remained in print because it is the standard work on the make. Not only is this book the definitive work because Wilson McComb was on the inside at MG for a decade, it is doubly so because the author knew exactly how a complex story such as this should be researched and told. And in Jonathan Wood, Osprey are proud to have employed the talents of a comparable expert. F. Wilson McComb updated the book in 1984, but sadly died before he could see the spectacular rebirth of his beloved marque, with the MG RV8 of 1992 and three years later, the mid-engined MGF roadster. From Cecil Kimber and the Bullnose MGs of the 1920s, to the thirties Midgets, the Magnettes, the TCs, the MGA, MGB, even the Metro and Maestro, every twist in the tale was followed by Wilson McComb, with an intimate knowledge not only of machinery but also of men, those who created the marque, some who abused it. There are not many more interesting automotive stories than that of the Octagon to be told, and MG will be one of the few British marques to make it into the 21st century
