  1.  British Military Trucks of the Cold War

    British Military Trucks of the Cold War

    The end of hostilities in 1945 left the British forces with a massive surplus of military vehicles placed throughout the many countries involved in the conflict. Much of this equipment after six years of war was in a very poor state of repair, and a lot was only fit for scrapping. The development and use of military trucks in the post-war period was therefore dominated by the feverish search for the ideal military vehicle. Moves had been made between the War Office and British manufacturers to produce a family of standard types to avoid the logistical nightmare that had occurred during the war with so many different makes. This search for much more suitable tactical-truck designs in the early 1950s created a period that was brimming with new ideas. The upcoming Cold War ushered in an incredible demand for a future, potentially nuclear clash between NATO and the Warsaw Pact on European soil. The fear of World War Three made possible one of the most creative design periods in military technology ever. The introduction of the FV numbering system additionally aimed at standardising the British military vehicle. After the war it blossomed into the idea of idealised military truck designs. The result of this heyday of military vehicle development was amazing trucks taking shape on drawing boards. This book aims at illustrating this amazing story for the very first time in one comprehensive publication. Mehr erfahren

    Vehicles captured around Dunkirk, in France, Belgium, Greece and North Africa - Service on the Eastern Front, in the West, South and with the Afrikakorps Captured Beutefahrzeuge of British manufacture were a significant addition to Germany's military efforts in the later war years. Without these trucks, many stemming from the Battle of Dunkirk, the German war machine would have been much less capable of waging Blitzkrieg against the Soviet Union from 1941. While Operation Dynamo, the evacuation from Dunkirk in May and June 1940, made possible the escape of more than 300,000 French and British soldiers, they had to leave all their heavy equipment behind. All in all, the BEF lost around 65,000 vehicles, many of which returned to military service on the German side and doing their duty on the Eastern Front. Other sources for the German Wehrmacht to lay its hands on British trucks to supplement its own forces were Operation Demon in April 1941, the British evacuation from Greece, and the campaign in North Africa from February 1941 to June 1943. This publication offers for the very first time a comprehensive overview on the various British Trucks in Wehrmacht Service, covering well-known models and makes such as the Bedford and the Morris-Commercial GS trucks in the 8cwt to 3-ton range, the heavy Scammell Pioneers and AEC Matadors, specialised vehicles such as cranes and field cars as well as many rarer makes, rarities and oddities. A special chapter also grants an overview on the Canadian-built vehicles of the British Army that served with the Afrikakorps. This book is the companion volume to Tankograd's 'British Military Trucks of World War 2'. For all British military vehicle enthusiasts these books are milestones. Mehr erfahren

    Introduced in 1981 and up till today still the only mass-produced wheeled self-propelled howitzer, the DANA is a class of its own. No one who ever took a close look at the DANA's unique design features can stop admiring the expertise and vision the Czechoslovakian designers of the 1970s put into this extraordinary vehicle. This is the first-ever comprehensive documentation on this vehicle and unlike only a pure walk-around this title offers: - comprehensive development and technical background - comparison with all modern international wheeled self-propelled gun systems - visual documentation of all main technical components - development and types of camouflage and markings - detailed external walk-around on in-service vehicles - coverage of interior details - photos from exercises and live firing missions - planned modernisation efforts - a comparative look on DANA's sister, the Zuzana vz. 2000 Mehr erfahren

    Reflecting on the development and active wartime service of the M25 makes it clear why the Dragon Wagon finally made it into the hall of fame for trucks and why it became a legend: It was the first mass-produced (1,372 in armoured and unarmoured versions) tank transporter and the first vehicle in its class solely developed to haul tanks and to recover them from the battlefield. All other heavy trucks that also served this purpose were either built in smaller numbers, were technically not that well advanced, or were not so well suited for either task. The M25, either with the armoured M26 or unarmoured M26A1 tractor truck, was the first of its kind at a time when tank transport was still in its infancy, certainly compared to what eventuated after World War Two. While the wartime M25 can be considered the ancestor of all modern tank transporters, the post-war M26A1 with M15A1 semitrailer would set the ultimate standard. All post-war designs are principally based on technical parameters the Dragon Wagon set, and indeed the overall design is still valid today, if the development of engines is taken into consideration. This publication closes one of the major gaps in the Dragon Wagon's bibliography: it is a technical high-quality photographical walk-around of excellently restored M26 tractor trucks and M15 / M15A1 semitrailers.

    Italy 1943-44, Hungary-Slovakia-Moravia 1944-45 Three Panzer-Sicherungs-Kompanien (armoured security companies) were created from existing units during the summer of 1943 to be employed in case of Italy's exit from the war. From September 1943, they were used to disarm the Italian Army and later to fight partisans in areas of northern Italy, Slovenia and Croatia. In the spring of 1944, the three companies became part of a newly created tank unit, Panzer-Abteilung 208 (armoured unit number 208). This unit remained in northern Italy until the end of the year, when it was re-equipped with new weapons and sent to the Hungarian front. From late December 1944, the Abteilung was engaged in heavy defensive battles west of encircled Budapest, and in February 1945 it was involved in one of the last successful German offensives, conducted against the Gran Soviet bridgehead. In March 1945, the Abteilung was renamed I. Abteilung/Panzer-Regiment „Feldherrnhalle" and fought its last battles in Hungary, Slovakia and Moravia as part of Panzer-Division „Feldherrnhalle" 1. On 232 pages the book recounts in detail the little-known history of these units, based on extensive archive research and contributions from former unit members. It contains 380 extremely rare photographs (most not published before), document reproductions, graphics and maps. In addition, specific chapters also deal with related units: Panzer-Abteilung „Adria", Panzer-Abteilung 212 in Italy, and Panzer-Einsatz-Kompanie „Ligurien". Mehr erfahren

    The ‘Leichter Personenkraftwagen K 1' VW Typ 82 Wartime Service & Production Batches The Kübelwagen is a legend. While there have been several publications covering this vehicle over the decades, this present book is different as it offers a fresh look and a unique approach: For the first time, a large amount of high-quality wartime photographs were available for the detailed research of production batches and individual components. This has allowed the first-ever, reliable production batch identifier to be published. In addition, the photos displayed are mostly unpublished and come from private photo albums of soldiers that drove in and worked with the Kübelwagen on a daily basis, rather than being well-known propaganda shots. This book starts where other publications end, with the moment the first Kübelwagen was delivered to the Wehrmacht in mid-1940, and it takes the reader through the war years and to all frontlines. - Introduction, Acknowledgements - Kübelwagen - History - Kübelsitzwagen - The Predecessors of the Kübelwagen - Kübelwagen - Production Batch Identifier - Kübelwagen - Close-Up - Wehrmacht Kübelwagen of the Afrika Korps - Wehrmacht Kübelwagen on the Eastern Front - Wehrmacht Kübelwagen on the Southern Front - Wehrmacht Kübelwagen on the Western Front and in the German Reich - Kübelwagen in Luftwaffe Service - Kübelwagen of the Kriegsmarine, Waffen-SS, Polizei - Kübelwagen - Maintenance, Accidents, Repairs - Kübelwagen - Funkwagen, Nachrichtenwagen - Radio Vehicles - Kübelwagen in U.S. Army and British Army Service - Amerikanischer Kübelwagen - The U.S. ‘Jeep' in Wehrmacht Service - Kübelwagen Addenda - Kübelwagen Camouflage Patterns Mehr erfahren
