For this book, Patrick Dyer has selected 44 examples to show the wide range of truck types that you are likely to see on British roads.

As Patrick writes in his Foreword - 'With its origins in the early part of the last century, the truck has developed over the years into a highly specialised tool with a staggering range of variants to fulfil a multitude of tasks.Æ

The 44 types shown in the book include flatbeds, box vans, refrigerateds, curtainsiders, sliding canopies, container artic, oil tanker, diesel artic, bulk powder artic, vacuum tanker, machinery carrier, low loader, car and bus transporters, tipper trucks, skip trucks, glass carrier, furniture van, logging trailer, concrete mixer, refuse truck, horsebox, road/rail truck, heavy haulage example and recovery truck.

Patrick accompanies each picture (the majority of which are from the manufacturers) with a clear description of type, a guide to typical use and some engineering details. These are reinfoced by a cutaway and diagrams at the end of the book.

Among the manufacturers who contributed pictures to the book are Isuzu Trucks, Mercedes-Benz UK, Iveco, DAF and Volvo.
