From 1934 to 1939, international motor racing for Grand Prix cars, the Formula 1 of that time, saw the supremacy of Mercedes and Auto Union.

That season, full of fascination and great risks, is remembered as the epic of the Silberpfeil, Silver Arrows; as the magnificent single-seaters of the two German manufacturers were called because of their exceptional performance and the colour of their bodies.

Supported by the Third Reich, which immediately turned them into a means of propaganda, designed by engineers like Ferdinand Porsche who imagined the future, made invincible by the avant-garde technologies of national industry and driven by legendary champions, Adolf Hitler's Formula 1s went from victory to victory, breaking the ambitions of Alfa Romeo, Bugatti and Maserati at every latitude.

This book chronicles, through a reconstruction based on documents of that time, the great races and the intertwining of sport and politics of six tumultuous years that preceded the tragedy of the Second World War.

In compelling, fast-paced pages like an action romance, the historical essay evokes the ambitions and passions, the successes and defeats of extraordinarily talented champions like Caracciola, Nuvolari, Rosemeyer, Varzi, Lang, Stuck, Von Brauchitsch and Fagioli.

Brave men who enchanted the crowds by daring to face death from above in impossible circuits with the Silberpfeil, the pride of National Socialist Germany.
