Images of war: Special Forces vehicles 1940 to the present day

Pat Ware

What is the ideal vehicle for Special Forces operations, for dangerous missions performed by small units of highly trained troops often working in enemy territory, behind enemy lines? Which vehicles have the world’s armies selected, adapted and developed since modern Special Forces established themselves as a key arm of the military during the Second World War?

 Pat Ware, leading British historian, in this authoritative and highly illustrated book, shows the fascinating variety of machinery that has been used, from converted Jeeps and Land Rovers to a bizarre collection of even more remarkable, sometimes purpose-built strike vehicles – the Scorpion, Cobra and Supacat Jackal, the LRDG Chevrolet, the Mechem, the Pinzgauer and the Warrior among them.

Soft cover, photographs, 144 pages.
