Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
In 1939 the allies faced a major conflict with few specialised military vehicles, as spending had been severely restricted during the twenty years of peace. germany, by contrast, had a programme of specialised transport well under way. Though the vehicles were too complex and were soon replaced by more basic designs. This comprehensive book covers the problems faced by the eight countries involved in the war, Greta Britain, the British Commonwealth, the United States, Germany, Italy, France, the Soviet Union and Japan, and the many and diverse vehicles which were developed, from 1/4-ton jeeps, half-tracks and amphibians, to tank transporters with a gross weight of 92 tons.
