The Kellner Affair tells the fascinating story of some of the most influential people in the French luxury car business before the War and how they came together and fought bravely against the Nazi occupation force in Paris. It tells how they formed a resistance group and gathered intelligence  ̶  how they were betrayed and how they were executed in 1942. These people included the famous coachbuilder Jacques Kellner, the designer Georges Paulin, and Walter Sleator, the director of Rolls-Royce France. The book goes deeply into their talent, their work, their life, their cars and their loved ones, and relies on newly discovered archive material. There is an in-depth discussion of aerodynamic cars, as well as the famous streamlined designs of Georges Paulin. It is the first factual account of these tragic and gripping events: what happened, how it happened, who was to blame, who was punished and who was not. Click here to see sample pages.
