Wheeled armored vehicles are as old as the motor car itself, with early armored cars first appearing before the start of World War 1. Within 20 years or so these crude early machines had become far more sophisticated, powerful, well-protected and armed with considerable firepower.In this fascinating new book accomplished military author Pat Ware tells the complete story of the development of the armored car, from its first blueprints to the significant role it ultimately played both in World Wars. Developed for use in reconnaissance, command, control and communications, these vehicles were far superior in speed and maneuverability to their tracked counterparts and provided a key supportive tool for the major combatants during World War 2. This book will be invaluable for all military enthusiasts who wish to have the fine detail on these magnificent, powerful vehicles, as it provides data on every armored vehicle in use between 1939 and 1945 together with a comprehensive vehicle listing. With an authoritative text, and a staggering amount of detail and data, this impressive work belongs on the shelf of all serious military historians and anyone who wishes to recreate this remarkable machine. This new title will complement the author's previous volumes World War Two German Trucks and World War Two Military Vehicles: Transport and Halftracks, building into a comprehensive library on World War 2 military vehicles.
