What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

Equipment Echoes, Issue 84

“To our knowledge, no other book has gone into the history of this venture in such detail. The story is told honestly, warts and all. Successes, breakthroughs and innovations are described along with fizzles, flops and other results of poor planning and mismanagement. The text is well-written, and the photographs, many of which are from the International Harvester collection at the Wisconsin Historical Society, are uniformly clear, sharp and well-reproduced. Several pages of tables provide condensed specifications of I-H’s crawler tractors, monthly production tallies for the TracTracTors, and serial number and year references for a great many other products.”
