Review quote

"This book fills a big gap in International Harvester history. Should appeal to all who are interested in the development of tractors and farm machinery, but must surely be top of the wants list for all International and Antipodean enthusiasts." Tractor Magazine, April 2009 "Although there are dozens of books on International Harvester, the majority give little, if any, mention of those products used or made outside the USA. The book's author has comprehensively addressed that shortfall. Lavishly illustrated with archive and modern images." --Vintage Tractor May 2009show more
