• Second volume of the highly detailed illustrated history of the American Half-Track M2

This second volume opens with a description of the Half-Track's incarnation as a weapons carrier, with all variants and versions presented on 75 pages of drawings along with a collection of photographs. The next chapter discusses further development of the vehicle's versions, which were not mass produced, illustrated with photographs and fabric drafts.

Also included is a description of the usage of the Half-Track during World War II, when it was utilised by the US Army and the USMC mainly for supplies of land-lease. Polish Armed Forces also used these vehicles both in the West and in the East, even after the war had ended.

This monograph contains a chapter about camouflage and the different markings of the Half-Trak's versions, in 12 superb colour plates. For modellers, there is a list of models and accessories, and the book comes complete with 34 pages of 3D colour graphics, colour photographs of museum exhibits and current running restored vehicles.

This book is bilingual, with Polish and English text and captions.

About Gun Power
This series focuses on the armour, armoured vehicles and artillery. Every book contains a chapter about the design's history, drawings in modelling scales, colour plates presenting camouflaging schemes and a modelling chapter. The part covering the design's development history is illustrated by a large number of photographs. The plans show different variants, all non-standard versions and modifications of the vehicles or guns in several views, and depict the details in the highest possible quality. Specifically for the modellers, the included colour profiles are printed in the same scale. A separate, comprehensive modelling chapter goes through the models and accessories sets available.
