9. Jeep: Trivia & Fun Facts Every Fan Should Know About The Great American Brand!
Author: by Rick Harper
Uncover The History! Special Launch PriceAre you familiar with how and why the original Jeep was created? The Jeep brand has been around since right before the United States joined WWII. It was created in 1940 and then went into full-scale production for the US Allied forces in Europe.
The Army asked several carmakers for bids when an on-the-road wartime vehicle was needed. Only three carmakers responded. Willys-Overland was awarded the bid in July 1941 to produce 16,000 Jeeps. These Jeeps were to go to Russia and England because the US had not yet entered the war.
When the United States did enter the war and used Jeep in mass, General George C. Marshall, US Army Chief of Staff during WWII, and later U.S. Secretary of State, described the Jeep Brand 4×4 as America’s greatest contribution to modern warfare.
This trivia book covers how the Jeep was conceived from the beginning origins of the Jeep up to what Jeep brings to the road today. A series of multiple-choice and true or false questions open each chapter, with the corresponding answers on the page after.

12. Airplanes of the Second World War Coloring Book (Dover History Coloring Book)
Author: by Carlo Demand
During World War II, armed aircraft became more deadly and sophisticated as the Allied and Axis powers struggled for supremacy. Fighters, bombers, reconnaissance planes, and transports were rapidly developed by both sides and sent into the conflict. The technology changed so quickly that some highly effective planes used early on were outmoded before the end of the war.
Now Carlo Demand, internationally known graphic artist, has rendered 46 planes of World War II especially for coloring. Among them, the “Enola Gay,” the Japanese Zero used by kamikaze pilots, the German Komet jet fighter, and the spunky British spitfire that performed so valiantly in the Battle of Britain.
Colorists will find detailed information in captions concerning authentic coloring, markings, and insignia, as well as information about design innovations, each plane’s military role and affiliation, and other pertinent data. The illustrations are accurate and authentic, and as part of the Dover Pictorial Archive Series, may be used royalty-free.

The Complete Book of Farmall Tractors details the complete evolution of the popular marque’s iconic models.

In 1923, International Harvester revolutionized the tractor world by conceiving the Farmall brand, a revolutionary new line of all-purpose tractors designed for small- to medium-sized farms.
Eventually offering an array of engine and equipment options, by the 1930s Farmalls were bestowed with letters as their model names, from the compact A, B, and C models to the larger H and M tractors. Fittingly known as the “Letter Series,” the tractors were even given a streamlined design by famed industrial designer Raymond Loewy.
Not surprisingly, they went on to become some of the most widely produced and best-selling American farm tractors of all time, to be followed beginning in 1954 with the numbered Hundred Series models. By 1947, Farmall had built over 1 million tractors. Amazingly, many are still in use today, not just as collector vehicles, but often as working farm tractors.
