WW1 Vehicle Information

While looking for information re wheel size and wheelbase for WW1 vehicles (hint hint; how about forwarding any info you might have for European vehicles!!) I came across a couple of series that some of you might find of interest.  The first is in Automobile Engineering, Vol 8, entitled Military Transport Chassis.  Included are reports on the Commer 3-ton, the Dennis 3 ton, FWD 3 ton, Locomobile 3-4 ton, Maudslay A chassis, Peerless 3-ton, Pierce Arrow 3-ton, Saurer 5-ton, and Thornycroft J.

The second is a five or six article series re captured German trucks by LtCol Arthur J Slade, US Army, and can be found in Automotive Industries, Vol 41.  Included are subjects such as axles, frames, drives, et cetera. 

Both have considerable information and can be downloaded via HathiTrust.Org.

Hi Al,

Automobile Engineering Vol 8 does not seem to be available online in the UK via the Hathi Trust, apparently for copyright reasons. Is there an alternative source?

All the best,
