Go Like Hell: Ford, Ferrari, and Their Battle for Speed and Glory at Le MansPaperback. A journalist friend of mine got together with Anthony Pritchard, and got the rights to reprint this significant book, about what is referred to as the Golden Age of racing.

Go Like Hell: Ford, Ferrari, and Their Battle for Speed and Glory at Le MansPaperback. BUT, the original small book was finished and printed when Ford left its' official direct international racing effort in 1967, but, Ford GTs again won LeMans in 1968, and 1969. Gulf, Wyer racing effort) So, my journalist friend got chapters from Mr Pritchard from a subsequent book, covering those years to make a more complete book about the Ford GT racing program.

If you want a great visual reference of the Ford and Ferrari endurance prototypes which raced in the mid- to late 1960s this book is a good choice

If you want a great visual reference of the Ford and Ferrari endurance prototypes which raced in the mid- to late 1960s this book is a good choice. Visual treatment of Jim Hall's Chapparals and various Matra and Porsche sports racers (917 series excepted), while not the focus of this book, is a nice bonus. This book is also an excellent choice if you: Are looking for moaning text from an overly-opinionated author holding obvious and largely unpleasant biases

Ford Vs Ferrari, the Battle for Le Mans Hardcover - 1984 by Anthony Pritchard (Author). Release Date:January 1984.

Directors: Anthony Russo, Joe Russo

Directors: Anthony Russo, Joe Russo. Ford v Ferrari is one of the latest true stories out of Hollywood that will be hitting the big screen soon, and here's why I believe it absolutely deserves attention. Following multiple characters throughout, Ford v Ferrari focussed on the fact that Henry Ford II was given an idea to create the fastest race car in the world.

This new book shares the title of Anthony Pritchard’s landmark book about this fabulous aspect of 1960s sports car racing - the big contest, played out above all at Le Mans, between Ford and Ferrari. The original book, which was published in 1968, when the battle between these two great marques was still ongoing, forms the basis of the new project, but the text is completely rewritten and much expanded to include material that was not available at the time. Above all, this new is incomparable visually, and contains an exceptionally comprehensive and well-balanced selection of photographs, both color and black and white, portraying the two teams and their rivals, the races, drivers, engineers and mechanics in the greatest detail on and off the track, in the paddock at race meetings, in factories and in workshops. 

This book is simply epic. It tells the tale extremely well, backed by superlative photography. Highly recommended! Spoiler alert--Ford wins! :)
I gave this book to my son as a birthday present. It was on his wish list for a long time. He sadi it is a terriffic book,with a great deal of good information.

This book is also an excellent choice if you:

* Are looking for moaning text from an overly-opinionated author holding obvious and largely unpleasant biases;

* Wish to hunt for typographical errors in an era in which modern composition tools make them increasingly difficult to find in published works - you'll find them here!

* Might find boring reading clear, concise, and compelling coverage of the formation and development of the Ford and Ferrari sports cars and racing teams in the mid- to late 1960s - you won't find it here!

All in all not worth the cover price, unless your embryonic motorsports library lacks anything of this genre and from this period. Look for my copy on eBay.
