Just as there are a handful of iconic motorcars, so too there is a handful of trucks that exert the same emotional pull. With its appetite for hard work and rugged no-nonsense appearance, the Scammell Pioneer is one such machine. Slow and cumbersome, even for its time, the Pioneer lacked creature comforts - and front wheel brakes - but, my goodness it was unstoppable! The Pioneer was trialled in the tank transporter role in 1932 but it was to be another five years before it entered service. Ultimately more than 500 examples went into service with the British Army.

The book is illustrated throughout with black and white photographs
