The Second World War Jeep was one of the most famous and
influential military vehicles of all time, and over 600,000 were
produced. It served with all the Allied forces during the war on
every front and it has been the inspiration behind the design of
light, versatile, rugged military and civilian vehicles ever since.
In this, the first volume in Pen & Sword's LandCraft series,
Lance Cole traces the design, development and manufacturing history
of the Jeep and describes its operational role within the Allied
armies. A selection of archive photographs showing the Jeep in
service in European and Pacific campaigns gives a graphic
impression of how adaptable the Jeep was and records the variety of
equipment it could carry. The book is an excellent source for the
modeller, providing details of available kits, together with
specially commissioned colour profiles recording how the Jeeps used
by different units and armies appeared. Lance Cole's introduction
to the Jeep is necessary reading and reference for enthusiasts and
