Land Rovers in Bri­tish Mil­i­tary Ser­vice

Classic Sports Car - - Books -

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. MP £37.50 James Tay­lor & Ge­off Fletcher, Ve­loce. ISBN 978 1 787112 40 7
