Abstract:

"Military Vehicles is a comprehensive guide to the world of military mobility in the twentieth century and beyond. In 300 detailed entries, it explores the combat, transport and utility vehicles which have supported military units from World War I to the present day. Categories include armored personnel carriers, armored cars, anti-aircraft vehicles, tank destroyers, trucks and transporters, amphibious vehicles, self-propelled artillery and more. Military Vehicles covers the development of these powerful weapons of war, from early iron-clad monsters such as the German Bussing A5P and the Russian Garford-Putilow armored cars to advanced machines such as the Italian MICV Dardo and the German LGS Fennek reconnaissance vehicle." "Each vehicle featured is illustrated by a full-color side-profile artwork. The service history and key features of the vehicle are explained, and a detailed specification table lists the country of origin, crew, weight, dimensions, armour, armament, powerplant and performance. Military Vehicles also features an introductory history of the development of military vehicles from 1900 to the present and a full glossary of technical terms and abbreviations. Book jacket."--Jacket.
