An engine comprising an isothermal air compressor (

1

) into which liquid is sprayed as the air is compressed. A combustion chamber (

4

) receives and expands the compressed air from which the liquid has been removed, to generate power. A precompressor (

21, 27

) compresses the air upstream of the isothermal compressor. The compressed air from the isothermal compressor receives heat from the exhaust gas from the combustion chamber in a primary heat exchanger (

3

). A secondary heat exchanger (

31, 45

) transfers heat recovered from a part of the engine to the compressed air from the isothermal compressor (

1

) upstream of the primary heat exchanger (

3

).
