ISRAELI HALF-TRACKS AND MODIFIED VEHICLES FROM 1960 TO THE PRESENT.
''Israeli Half-tracks'' is the most comprehensive history of any Israeli Defence Force vehicle in print. In two volumes totalling 394 pages, it presents a detailed account of the many designs in IDF service and their combat history over six decades and many Arab-Israeli wars. The text is complemented by a staggering 750 black and white and colour photographs, mostly previously unpublished and sourced from official and unofficial collections. They provide in unprecedented detail a visual feast for the modeller and vehicle enthusiast, and include much interior detail of a staggering number of designs, the vehicles in training, in combat and preserved in museums. The vehicles are seen a number of roles: troop transports, mine clearers, engineering vehicles, anti-aircraft defence, command and communications vehicles, mortar carriers and much more. Israeli Half-tracks Volume 2 covers Israeli half-tracks and modified vehicles from 1960 to the present, and includes a short section on captured BTR-152 wheeled APCs. Tom Gannon's work is a tour de force, and an essential addition to any self-respecting vehicle library.
