Military Briefs No.6 - Israeli Improvised Armoured Vehicles and Jeeps 1947- 49 by John Myszka


Breaking News - Only 12 COPIES available before it becomes a collectors item


    ISBN 0-9577586-4-2

   128 pages , A4 soft cover, perfect bound with 260+ black and white images , most of which have not been published before.  There are also 15 1/35 scale plans and 4 appendices. 

   I have been researching the information for this book since 1998 and had the scale drawings done in 2001.  Some drawings have been refined more recently as a result of ore detailed information becoming available.

   An ideal book for the modeller or historian interested in this period on Israeli military vehicle development during this early period of the Israeli Defence Forces. 

   A good companion book to Military Briefs No.2 Israeli Tank based carriers by Marsh Gelbart and Israeli Military vehicle 1948-1998.  The First 50 years.       Both books are still available but only in limited numbers as they were both published some years ago.  Both of these books will not be reprinted when they are sold out.
