Format 158 pages, hardbound MSRP (USD) $37.95


An unsung hero of American military vehicle production enjoys special illumination in the latest “Casemate Illustrated” entry.

U.S. Army Diamond T Vehicles in World War II spans 15 informative chapters across 158 picture-packed pages:

  • Where It All Began
  • The First Generation
  • The Second Generation
  • The Third Generation
  • Cargo Trucks
  • Wrecker Trucks
  • Pontoon Trucks
  • Dump Trucks
  • Canadian Trucks
  • The Bare Chassis
  • Special Services
  • Halftracks
  • Prime Mover Trucks
  • Production
  • Technical Specifications

Author Didier Andres masterfully shoehorns substantial detail into his compact chronicle. And hundreds of illustrations season the study.

A brief company history kick-starts contents. Production notes, extended captions, and tables augment the effort. And a selected bibliography and acknowledgements nicely wraps things up.

Period photos, archival images, production shots, vehicle details, and even contemporary advertising visually embellish the account.

How about that pic of General George S Patton’s halftrack?
