    DescriptionThe Jeep was the most famous military vehicle of World War II, and the name has become synonymous with a whole class of military and civilian all-terrain vehicles. The Jeep originated in a pre-war US Army requirement for a simple, inexpensive, and robust vehicle for basic utility chores. Its simple design proved to be adaptable to a host of military tasks including use as a scout vehicle, battlefield ambulance, communications vehicle, and staff car. This book, covering the saviour of World War II, focuses the design and development of an infamous vehicle used on nearly every front of World War II.

    Review quote
    "Once again Steve Zaloga comes through with a short, concise history of the ubiquitous Jeep!" -Dave O'Meara, "Armorama" (February 2006) "I have to say that I like the way this book reads. If you are looking for a handy, quick reference that covers the basics of many of the Jeep variants, then by all means, buy this book." -Mark Smith, "Armorama" (December 2005)
