    DescriptionThis is an illustrated A-Z guide to all the major tractor and truck manufacturers around the world. It offers a comprehensive history of tractors and trucks, tracing their evolution from the early pioneers to today's state-of-the-art farming and road machines. It features tractors, farm machinery, military vehicles, general load carriers and dump trucks, and includes historical examples and many lesser-known makes. From farming and cultivation to road transportation and furniture removal, tractors and trucks perform a huge variety of tasks. This magnificent encyclopedia charts the complete evolution of these vehicles and features extensive A-Z guides to each manufacturer. All of the most successful makes are included, each including a history of the company and the decisions that shaped their successes or failures. This definitive reference book has been written by two transport enthusiasts, and with its highly engaging text as well as over 1,500 stunning photographs, it is an exciting reference source for everyone who has an interest in farming and trucking.
