    DescriptionFrom Allis-Chalmers to Vickers, this is an A-Z of tractors made in Britain between 1945 and 1965, written by a universally acknowledged expert in the subject, whose work has been widely published in books and magazines. It deals with the products of not only British manufacturers such as David Brown, Ferguson and Nuffield, but also the American makers who established plants in Britain to overcome post-war import restrictions, which included International Harvester, Massey-Harris and Minneapolis-Moline. Demand for tractors after the War was insatiable, and the period covered saw extraordinary growth in production and innovation in design. The text is illustrated exclusively with images - some 400 in all - from the manufacturers' sales brochures and publicity material, giving a unique flavour of the times and an impression of the features the manufacturers were highlighting in the promotion of their tractors.

    Author Information
    A leading author and journalist specialising in tractors and machinery, Stuart Gibbard has produced many award-winning books and DVDs, including seminal works on Ford, Ferguson and David Brown. He is the former editor of both Old Tractor and Vintage Tractor & Countryside Heritage magazines, and is currently the editor of the David Brown Tractor Club's Tractor News. Devoting much of his time to historical research, Stuart has met and talked with many of the world's leading tractor designers and engineers, and has amassed a substantial reference library and photo archive. He also has a keen interest in early tractor literature, which he has developed into a mail order business run in partnership with his wife, Sue. Stuart has been collecting tractors for nearly 40 years and has an excellent practical knowledge of agriculture gained from running the family arable and bulb farm in South Lincolnshire until the early 1990s when he moved into journalism.
