1st ed., 1971. 177 pp., 178 cold., plates. D.j., 19 x 14cm. Nr.FINE. The predominant coverage of military transport in this book is of Second World War vehicles, although many of the most important vehicles developed post-war are also included. The major instrument of military operations in the Second World War was the armoured or mechanised division where the infantry was carried in trucks or armoured carriers close behind the tanks, and the artillery was towed or carried by lorries, later being placed on motor carriages of various kinds. This book records a good cross-section of the types of transport employed by the belligerent nations and 178 coloured plates illustrate the vehicles described, including some unusual types.
