BRITISH MILITARY TRANSPORT
First published in 1998, David Fletcher’s British Military Transport is uniquely broad and detailed history of the road vehicles that have kept the British Army on the move.
Fletcher describes the vehicles and their evolution, relating their design and usage to contemporary events in war, in politics and on ‘civvie street’.
With more than 200 photographs and scale drawings, it covers everything from the 1829 demonstration of Gurney’s traction engine for the Duke of Wellington, to the rugged Bedford trucks of the 1956 Suez Crisis.
Technical ,but a very interesting read.
