The American general Dwight Eisenhower, who was to become President of the United States, said on more than one occasion that the Jeep was the weapon that permitted the Allies victory over the Axis forces in the Second World War, on all fronts and in all situations. The Jeep was born to satisfy the American army’s precise request for mobility; it was an innovative vehicle for its time, one that introduced a new concept of military mobility and was testimony to defeats and victories at all altitudes and in every climactic condition. At the end of the Second World War, the Jeep was adapted to agricultural and industrial work, being given the CJ (Civilian Jeep) designation that it was to maintain over a number of successful decades and series. Shortly after the end of the war, the MB provided the cue for the creation in parallel of a range of multi-purpose vehicles, including a station wagon, a pick up and a commercial van, that guaranteed the survival of the Willys Overland company. The Jeep did suffer moments of industrial crisis, financial vicissitudes and changes in ownership that began in the Eighties when AMC was sold to Renault, then Daimler Chrysler and then an investment fund, before Chrysler finally joined the Fiat group. This book covers this long and complicated story, through to the 1980s, drawing on meticulous historical research, a rich photographic survey and technical files detailing the principal models.

LAND ROVER. Serie "Le vetture che hanno fatto la storia"

The Land Rover was conceived by the Rover Company back in 1948 as an answer to the famous Willys Jeep, which was used throughout the Second World War. The Land Rover soon became an institution and an ambassadress of the British automotive industry across the world. Almost immediately, the potential of this small and agile multi-use vehicle was recognised and the groups of its users spread to the military, fire services, fuel companies; in practice to anyone who needed to go off-road. It didn’t take long for the success of the Land Rover to develop and diversify into numerous versions, bringing to life an entire family of variants, after which many body builders created even more special series, often single examples. Land Rover was able to save itself from the serious crisis that hit the British motor industry in the ‘70s, evolving through to today with the Range Rover and the Defender family vehicles. There was no way such important vehicles couldn’t be in our series on the “Vehicles that made History” in a book that covers the genesis of the Willys Jeep to the various series that have spelt out the production of this legendary vehicle, including all the military versions and those built overseas.
