Description
A photographic tribute to the Land Rover, ‘the World’s Most Versatile Vehicle’: from the Series I model in 1948 to the final Defender of 2016. Now, as an all-new Defender takes to the roads, this visual feast celebrates the vehicle which has weathered all-terrains and tough challenges in stunning photographs and memorabilia, many of the images being rarely published. Informative captions trace the vehicle from its inspiration in the US Army Willys Jeep of the Second World War and its Welsh design heritage, through early factory and test photographs, vintage advertising and celebrity passengers, including Marilyn Monroe, Winston Churchill and the Royal Family. Plus terrific images of the vehicle turning its wheels to assist the army, Forestry Commission, highway patrols, fire service, farming, airports and more. With great close-up details and evocative views, this will delight any fan of the formidable 4X4 pioneer.
