This is the never before-seen real life tale of the captivating lives of truck drivers. “It was important to me that the stalwart cooperation of the truckies, their families, and the trucking companies were respected and represented fully. This is why it was so vital to feature each state and territory across Australia and New Zealand,” asserted the author, Alice Mabin. “I absorbed so much on this legendary journey. I learned how to drive a road train, change tyres, fix fuel leaks, tie down freight, and to cook on the side of the road”.

Riot Control Vehicles: 1945-Present #219 Osprey New Vanguard, Chris McNab
2 Riot Control Vehicles: 1945-Present #219 Osprey New Vanguard
Chris McNab UK Osprey Publishing 2015 1472805151 / 9781472805157 Soft cover New Book 
Fully illustrated with a mixture of dramatic archive photos and manufacturers' images, this volume covers the little-known history of riot control vehicles. It explores the world of these vehicles from 1945 through to the present day - from adapted military armoured cars such as the Humber Pig (UK) and BRDM (Soviet Union) to the fully computerized systems of the Russian Lavina-Uragan and Canadian INKAS Armored Riot Control Vehicle - showing how their development and deployment has blurred the lines between civilian actions and military operations. It charts how the vehicles have evolved in terms of technology and layout, and also details how the associated weapon systems have been refined over time, from water cannon and tear gas launchers to subsonic sound waves and microwave energy. The operational history of the vehicles is explained in the dramatic context of major incidents across the world, from the streets of Northern Ireland and Eastern Europe to the favelas of Brazil and the battlegrounds of Iraq.

Golden Miles: Sex, Speed & The Australian Muscle Car, Clinton Walker
3 Golden Miles: Sex, Speed & The Australian Muscle Car
Clinton Walker Australia Wakefield Press 2009 1862548544 / 9781862548541 Soft cover New Book 24.0 x 17.4 x 2.5 cm 
Thirty years on the muscle car era still resonates. Why do these beautiful beasts hold to much fascination? Read Golden miles to get the truth about a time when modern Australia's real sense of itself was taking shape. GOLDEN MILES is an auto biography by Clinton Walker, a book about cars, people and place. Australia in the late 60s/early 70s was a young country bursting at the seams: charging through a brief window of opportunity between the end of colonialism and the beginning of globalism, the muscle car was the archetypal product of Australian suburbia, a fusion of the larrikin spirit and the sexual revolution, the Me Generation in overdrive ... GOLDEN MILES by Clinton Walker is a social history of these cars - the Holden Monaro, Falcon GT. Valiant Charger and others - whose sex drive has endured so strongly that they are now being reborn. With the energy and irreverent humour of a fanzine, the acuity of investigative journalism and the eye of an art book, this new, updated edition of GOLDEN MILES takes Australian non-fiction to a high level. As a critique of consumerism, a meditation on beauty, loss and national identity, and a rollicking yarn full of action and colourful characters, it is a reminder of a time when Australia - the world - was a wilder, freer place: a time when the muscle car ruled our lazy highways with a promise of danger and desire that casts a spell still.

Wizard of Oz: Speed, Modernism and the Last Ride of Norman 'Wizard' Smith, Clinton Walker
4 Wizard of Oz: Speed, Modernism and the Last Ride of Norman 'Wizard' Smith
Clinton Walker Australia Wakefield Press 2013 1862549508 / 9781862549500 Soft cover New Book 23.5 x 15.5 x 2.0 cm 
In the bitter autumn of 1932, as the world crashed into the Great Depression, Australian motor ace Norman 'Wizard' Smith sat on the remote Ninety Mile Beach in far north New Zealand, waiting for the wind to change; waiting for a chance to drive his streamlined super car the Enterprise to a new world speed record. He would be the fastest man on earth - a golden god! He waited and waited ... Norman Smith was an enigma. A contemporary of Bradman, Kingsford Smith and Phar Lap, he was dumpy and shy. But when he got behind the wheel he became the Wizard, his command uncanny, the speeds breathless. In league with engineer Don Harkness, who designed and built the Enterprise, he was pointing Australia toward a brighter future. Until somewhere along the line, things started going wrong. What really happened on that lonely beach? Clinton Walker lays bare the tragic fall from grace of Norman 'Wizard' Smith - an ordinary man lost to an extraordinary quest, and, until now, a forgotten figure.

Holden Days: From the Original 48-215 'FX' to the 1966 HR, Don Loffler
7 Holden Days: From the Original 48-215 'FX' to the 1966 HR
Don Loffler Australia Wakefield Press 2013 1743051158 / 9781743051153 Hardcover New Book 23.7 x 22.0 x 3.0 cm 
This fifth Holden book by Don Loffler is a new initiative. It extends beyond the first two Holden series, the 48-215 'FX' and the FJ, and comprises a chapter on each of the first 10 Holden series, finishing with the 1966 HR. It is amazing that, although Don has already published over 1500 different photographs of FX and FJ Holdens in his first four books, he has tracked down another 100 new images for this book and, in addition, 300 photographs covering the FE to HR chapters. All images are from the era in which the cars were in their heyday. While the search and research for the images has involved considerable time and expense, the process has brought the handsome rewards of many new friendships and useful contacts for future books. As a result, his plans for a sixth book are well underway. This time, the book will feature photographs of rare and usual examples of the first 10 Holden series, with most of the vehicles being superbly restored, often from shocking wrecks. Much to the surprise of many, Don Loffler is not the son of a Holden dealer. He has never been a Holden factory employee, nor has he ever worked in the motor trade. He is a former German, Latin and Chemistry teacher, who in his retirement has the luxury of writing books on his lifetime interest in early model Holden cars, their history and the social setting into which they arrived. Born in Kapunda, South Australia, he gained an Arts degree and two Education diplomas from the University of Adelaide. His late wife, also a graduate with similar degrees from the same university, was his inspiration in the initial years of his book writing, and the tradition is now maintained by his adult son Michael and daughter Helen. Don has five new books in various stages of development, involving him in frequent Australia-wide travel and research. If that's retirement,' he says, 'I can't get enough of it!'

Holden Snapshots: Images from the Golden Years, Don Loffler
8 Holden Snapshots: Images from the Golden Years
Don Loffler Australia Wakefield Press 2015 174305386X / 9781743053867 Hardcover New New Book 24.0 x 22.0 x 2.5 cm 
‘Having written the official history of Holden and then completed a PhD and related book on the origins of the Holden from deep within General Motors culture, I don’t always rush to read more material on Holdens … unless it is yet another of Don Loffler’s wonderful books. Like his previous five beautifully written and illustrated productions, Holden Snapshots is full of yarns about early model Holdens and their place in the lives of individuals and the broader cultural tapestry. By giving the old cars he features this full context, Don brings history to life in the most accessible and readable way.’ Dr. John M. Wright (PhD), eminent Australian motoring journalist and author of landmark Holden history, Heart of the Lion, and the groundbreaking research book, Special: The untold story of Australia’s Holden. Don Loffler has surprised himself, and probably many of his faithful readers, by writing this sequel to his fifth book, Holden Days, before completing the promised book on rare and unusual examples of the first ten Holden models. When Holden Days was released, he had no idea he would receive many new images from readers generally and, in particular, from the relatives and friends of those whose images appear in the book. In addition, Don kept locating new images through his own research. Holden Snapshots is the stunning result, a history of Holden in many new and never-before-seen images. Some people guess that Don Loffler is the son or relative of a Holden dealer, or a former Holden factory employee, or someone closely connected with the motor trade. He is none of these, but a retired German, Latin and Chemistry teacher, who is enjoying the process of writing books on his passion – the early Holden models and the history behind them. Born in Kapunda, South Australia,Don gained an Arts degree and two Education diplomas from the University of Adelaide. His late wife, also a graduate with similar degrees from the same university, was his inspiration in the initial years of his book writing, and the tradition is now maintained by his son Michael and daughter Helen. Don Loffler regards himself as fortunate indeed to be writing book seven, as well as planning further books on various motoring themes. What a retirement hobby! About the Author: Don lived in the small town of Wanbi, in South Australia's Murray Mallee, but on this particular day was idly wandering through the showroom of the car dealership in nearby Loxton. "While my dad was talking to some sales guys, I went in and had a look around and that was when I saw the first Holden, the 48-215 'FX'," Don says.

The Polish army during the Blitzkrieg conjures up tragic images of infantry and dashing, but ineffective and ultimately doomed cavalry charges. In actuality the Poles, in the midst of a large-scale re-armament programme, had up to 600 armoured vehicles available at the time of the German attack, as well as a number of newer and better designs in various stages of development. Facing the inventors of the 'Lightning War', who attacked in great numbers, on multiple fronts and with total mastery of the air, the Polish armoured formations were up against it. But outdated equipment, doctrine and enormous odds did not stop these units from fighting with bravery and determination before being finally overwhelmed. This volume is a complete technical study of the machines that formed the backbone of Poland's defences on the ground, using never-before-seen photographs and a comprehensive design and developmental history that reveal a full picture of Poland's armoured forces in the context of their greatest challenge.

Tanks: 100 Years of Evolution, Richard M. Ogorkiewicz
18 Tanks: 100 Years of Evolution
Richard M. Ogorkiewicz UK Osprey Publishing 2015 1472806700 / 9781472806703 Hardcover New Book 
Tank presents a comprehensive account of the world-wide evolution of armoured vehicles from their inception a century ago to the present day, starting with a detailed reappraisal of the development of tanks and how they evolved during World War I. By the end of that conflict tanks had gained considerable importance. However, this was not sustained in its immediate aftermath and a revival only began when the British Army started in to experiment in the 1920s with a more mobile use of tanks. The subsequent rise of the importance of armoured vehicles was accompanied by and was partly due to the advances in their design and performance achieved in Europe and America before World War II. The enhanced capabilities that tanks consequently acquired enabled them to become the core of combined-arms, mechanized formations. Professor Ogorkiewicz has worked in the field of armoured vehicle development since the 1970s, and this is a serious, analytical study on the history of tank development and armoured warfare. About the Author From 1972 to 2006 Professor Richard Ogorkiewicz was an independent member of several boards and committees of the Defence Scientific Advisory Council of the Ministry of Defence. Since 1979 he has been lecturing on armoured vehicles to Army Command and Staff at the Royal Military College of Science, now part of the Defence Academy of the United Kingdom, and since 1988 has been a Visiting Professor there. He is the author of three books on armoured vehicles. Since 1988 he has been consulting editor of IHS International Defence Review, contributing to it numerous articles on armoured vehicles, and since 1993 has also been a trustee of the national Tank Museum at Bovington.
