An Illustrated A-Z of World Trucks
Over their history of more than 100 years, trucks have demonstrated an impressive capacity for carrying heavy loads often over great distances that has earned them a central role in modern industry and a prominent one on our roads. Over the course of this time, there have been hundreds of truck manufacturers, some of which are still around today and others that have fallen by the wayside despite making some excellent vehicles. This guide is an encyclopedia of all the major truck-builders, as well as being a guide to some of the more interesting and specialist minor manufacturers. Entries describe in detail the history of each particular company and of course the models for which they are famous.
