The myth that Alec Issigonis conceived the Mini is just one whisp of the smoke screen that obscures the untold story of post-War Britainas greatest industrialist. This is more than a motoring story. You will find commentary on life in the first half of the 20th century as you explore the drama of one manas determination to overcome adversity. Someone who ashot from the hipa as no other tycoon. This is a tale of political and military intrigue. Of spectacular business acumen. Of bitter, violent, industrial conflict. An account of savage jealousies and sexual intrigue.
