As regular readers will know, Motor Racing Publications. of 28 Devonshire Road, London 9)4 2110, have published a series of excellent books on individual makes of commercial vehicles — their origins, history and present-day make-up, with excellent illustrations of all this. Their latest title in this “Trucks Today” series is Mercedes-Benz. It is of more than usual interest because of the leading position of Daimler-Benz in the commercial-vehicle field and the num.rs of Mercedes-Benz trucks and vans of various sizes seen in this country. The book is by Eric Gibbons, the well-known commercial-vehicle journalist, and it has more than 140 pictures — in some of these Mercedes-Benz cars are seen in conjunction with the Mercedes-Benz commercial vehicle .ing depicted but the cars of this illustrious make are as universal as the trucks, so such are not necessarily posed shots. The price of the book is £7.95 and other “trucking” books in the MRP lists cover Ford. Scania and OAF. — W.B.
