No vehicle has evoked such emotion in both war and peace as the ubiquitous and ever-versatile Jeep. After reviewing the Jeep's design and birth, and its unique role in WWII, Taylor reveals all models from the original CJ derivative of the military Jeep to the latest Grand Cherokee, one of the most coveted of today's luxury 4x4 SUVs. Comprehensive appendices cover technical specs, production numbers and performance figures.
