Summary

Summary

Since exploding on the scene as the world's greatest fighting machine at the proving grounds of Camp Holabird, Maryland, in 1940, the Jeep now holds the title as perhaps one of America's most beloved vehicles. How did Jeep go from a life-saving godsend at Normandy, Inchon, and the jungles of Vietnam to the comfortable, well-built sport utility vehicle of today? Jeep historian and former Jeep salesman Patrick Foster uncovers 60 years of Jeep development with dozens of rare photogrpahs plus a complete historical background of today's Cherokees, Wranglers and Grand Cherokees. It covers early Jeep prototypes, Jeeps of the future and a special chapter on the most desirable and collectible Jeeps of particular interest to collectors. Every Jeep made, model-by-model, is completely detailed and illustrated for simple identification.
