Publisher Pen and Sword Military
Author David Doyle
Size 24.5cm x 18.7cm
Although initially conceived for use by commandos in snow in Norway during World War Two, the Weasel would go on to see use in Italy, France, Germany and the Pacific theatre and later during the Korean War thanks to their excellent performance in muddy conditions too. Using hundreds of rare black and white and colour images, author David Doyle traces the history of this remarkable tracked vehicle from development to deployment.
Verdict: A comprehensive resource for modellers, wargamers, military vehicle restorers or historians wanting more information on one of World War Two’s most successful all-terrain vehicles.
