A wide variety of trucks are featured, with more than 700 photographs, from general load carriers such as box vans and furnitureremoval vans, to specialized vehicles such as fire trucks, military trucks and mobile cranes. Trucks from Europe, North America and many other countries are discussed, highlighting differences in design and the manufacturers who made them.
