Best of British trucks

by Steve Lanham | 30 September 2021
Hardback
For almost a century, the UK's road network rumbled to the sound of haulage and delivery vehicles almost exclusively made up of trucks built on home soil. From the 1920s right through to the 1960s, British manufacturers became renowned the world over for their production of reliable workaday lorries and earned a reputation for quality engineering. The likes of Albion, Commer, Foden and Scammell would eventually become household names, greatly contributing to the country's economic growth as well as playing major roles in times of conflict. Yet in the 21st century, a truck carrying the badge of a British company is seldom seen and furthermore it is even rarer to find one that has actually been built in this country. Richly illustrated, this book charts the history of the King of the Road, from the humble steam wagon to giant diesel-powered articulated juggernauts.
