The Kübelwagen is a legend. While there have been several publications covering this vehicle over the decades, this present book is different as it offers a fresh look and a unique approach.

For the first time, a large amount of high-quality wartime photographs were available for the detailed research of production batches and individual components. This has allowed the first-ever, reliable production batch identifier to be published. In addition, the photos displayed are mostly unpublished and come from private photo albums of soldiers that drove in and worked with the Kübelwagen on a daily basis, rather than being well-known propaganda shots.

This book starts where other publications end, with the moment the first Kübelwagen was delivered to the Wehrmacht in mid-1940, and it takes the reader through the war years and to all frontlines.
