The legendary Unimog Truck in German Service – Part 2 by Ralf Maile As iconic as the Land Rover, the ubiquitous Unimog came about during the immediate post-WW2 period and as a brand name is still in production today with Mercedes-Benz. Tens of thousands have been built but one of the more familiar versions of the Unimog was the 1.5 ton ‘S’ of which 36,638 of them served the Bundeswehr for an impressive period of 53 years.

The second of three parts which cover the development and service record of this versatile vehicle, this book contains 86 black and white and 23 colour photographs. A 1/35 scale line drawing, covering two pages apiece, is also included by Dirk Degenhardt of a cargo version of the Unimog ‘S’ and the Double-Cab Driver-Trainer. A dual language (English/German) book, it is broken down into sections covering the Unimog ‘S’ cargo variants, specialised versions (Inc. ambulance, dummy training tank and fire engine) and Double-Cab Driver-Trainer variant.

Photographs are up to usual high standard you would expect for a Tankograd production and the text is informative throughout. With thanks to Justin at Bookworld Wholesale Ltd. (www.bookworldws.co.uk[1]) who are the main distributor in the UK for this book. First publishing in MM4710
