Thanks Guy! I fear that my wallet shall fall in the pursuit of this objective.... postage rates from Europe are becoming incredibly high lately!

This is an outstanding book with many fascinating photographs and a great deal of useful information. I bought a copy a little while ago, and it is one of the best purchases I have made.smile

Just to say many thanks for flagging this up and for recommending it - especially as the Barbarossa price is said to be half price (presumably of their own post-importation price) - certainly cheaper than the cheapest on abebooks.

I had missed this one and have ordered a copy - look forward to seeing mine when it comes ...

Yes, mine cost me £50 about 5 years ago. Very good book though.

May I please readily agree with the previous comments.  This is a surperb book, lovingly put together by the authors after what would have been many years tracking down and purchasing original images.

Anyone familiar with the current value of original photographs and the leg work required to find the top images to compile a book such as this will soon tell you that you that this book is an absolute bargin.  Go buy while it's so cheap!

Mine came some days ago. And it's lovely. Not just lorries as the title suggests (at least with my French) but cars, 'breaks', and so on and so forth - mobile pigeon coops, etc. etc.

Yesterday I got this book (on sale!) from Barbarossa Books. It's great! Only thing I would have added would have been more 3 view drawings, but I assume that those are not easily available. Never knew that there was so much variety of vehicles.... The book gives lots of ideas for dioramas and sure one would love to have some of the wackiest designs from the era... Wonder if one can convert any existing kit to one of these trucks...

Hi Guys

Came across this thread yesterday and did a Google search for a copy. Amazon has it for sale as a Kindle edition at £5.49. My French is minimal but it is full of photographs that I have not seen before.
