IMAGES OF WAR: SPECIAL FORCES VEHICLES 1940 to the Present Day

IMAGES OF WAR: SPECIAL FORCES VEHICLES
1940 to the Present Day 
Since the advent of the Long Range Desert Force, later the SAS, the vehicles bearing special forces on their dangerous missions have been of the highest importance. From Jeeps and Land Rovers to Scorpions, Cobras, Supacat Jackals and Warriors, author Pat Ware tells the story of these sometimes bizarre carriers, the men who drove them and the tasks they performed.
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? And 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, in this authoritative and highly illustrated book, uses all his expert knowledge of the history of military vehicles to show 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. As well as describing the anatomy of the typical special forces vehicle, with particular reference to the iconic SAS Jeeps and the Land Rover 'Pink Panther', he illustrates all of the known special forces vehicles, giving technical data, including information on power units and transmission, type of weapons, auxiliary equipment, armoured protection, speed and mobility, and weight. He also explains the nature of special forces and describes their historic origins, with emphasis on units such as the LRDG, the SAS and Popski's Private army during the Second World War, and he looks at modern special forces and their role.
