To date, Nuts & Bolts has only produced publications on tracked, half-track vehicles and weapon systems. With this volume, the first issue in a series which will deal exclusively on Lorries – in particular the medium cross-country Lorries (commercial) – m. gl. Lkw. (o) – of the Reichswehr and Wehrmacht.

The development of these vehicles was started in the second half of the 1920s and their appearance characterised the Reichswehr and Wehrmacht in the 1930s. During the war, these vehicles had to face strains in the different theatres of operations for which they had not been developed. Nevertheless, many of these Lorries served until the end of the war. Only a few vehicles have survived until today. This was partially caused by the shortage of transportation vehicles in Europe after the war. Due to this, most remaining vehicles were driven to destruction.
