A must-have book for any military vehicle enthusiast, detailing more than 100 classic military vehicles from U.S., UK, Russian, and German forces

Many thousands of different types of vehicles were used by the armies during World War II for various roles, including the fighting vehicles such as armored cars and tanks. Today these are very popular with enthusiasts who restore the historic vehicles to their pristine state and attend specialist gatherings. This book introduces some of the better-known examples of these preserved vehicles as well as some of those which are not so well known. This range includes trucks to keep the armies supplied, ambulances, motorcycles, armored cars, and of course the impressive range of tanks from the smallest to some of the largest. Some vehicles are so rare that examples have been re-created using original designs and, together with the original vehicles, their history is told in this book. From jeeps to tanks, landrovers to ambulances, this is the perfect book for re-creating, restoring, and exploring the history of these vehicles that were vital to the war effort. Schematic diagrams, fact boxes, and stat charts offer a wealth of technical information.

John Norris escorts battlefield tours, works as a columnist on several leading specialist military magazines, and liaises with both reenactment groups and classic military vehicle societies. He is the author of Artillery: A History.
