 ABOUT THE TITLE
A vital element of the fighting capability of any modern mechanized army lies in its military vehicles. Without the cargo/troop-carrying trucks, wreckers, tankers, ambulances, communications vehicles and other specialized types that provide technical support to the front-line troops, it would be impossible to compete in modern warfare as the food, ammunition and other supplies were consumed. This substantial reference book provides an authoritative and well-illustrated 100-year overview of the fascinating history of these vehicles.

The author begins by describing the development of the wheeled military vehicle, from the mechanically basic motor lorry at the opening of the 20th century, through the first mechanized conflict that was World War I, to the technological changes of the inter-war years and the rapid technical improvements during World War II and after. Key developments are described in detail, with topics such as the emergence of standardized designs, the importance of all-wheel drive, half-tracked vehicles, ambulances and medical vehicles, missile transporters and amphibious vehicles, as well as discussions of the impact and aftermath of the two world wars.

A country-by-country A-Z directory covers over 185 specific vehicles in detail. The origins and development of each vehicle are clearly described, and a specification panel gives key performance and dimensional data. Vehicles such as the Jeep and Dodge from World War II have been selected for iconic status; others have been chosen for technical excellence or historical significance, or simply for innovative design.

Over 540 photographs from museums, libraries and other historical sources show the vehicles in action and in service. Restored vehicles have also been photographed for the book by leading military vehicle photographers. This expertly written volume provides enthusiasts, historians and modelmakers with a superb guide to this fascinating subject.
