Land Rovers in British Military Service
This is the follow-up to 2015’s guide to leaf sprung military models, again authored by Land-rover historian James Taylor and military specialist Geoff Fletcher.
Putting aside the debatable Photoshop work and dubious choice of body-text font, it’s another authoritative publication that will have huge appeal to both Land-rover and military enthusiasts alike. From considerable lists of military asset codes to chapters on the main conversions and applications, this is an important volume of reference material. It is, of course, packed with images and although each is worthy of inclusion and helps illustrate the huge variety of vehicles in service, the quality is patchy – understandable because many are shown either in the field or at shows once retired. It’s not cheap, but you get 176 pages of technical information and it’s certain to be one you return to if your interest extends to post-leaf-sprung Land-rovers and Range Rovers.
