A book that has been in my collection for a very long time and is still in print, WW2 Jeep Military Portfolio 1941-1945, is a book worthy of your consideration. It has a number of period articles and even some from years after the introduction of the jeep to the world. It isn’t a book that will help you with your restoration but adds a bit of knowledge to your kit of facts to help you understand the jeep.
If you are interested in a book that will help you with your restoration then you want to get The Complete WW2 Military Jeep Manual (Brookland Military Vehicles). It includes all the manuals you will need to help you work on your WW2 jeep. There are other versions of the manuals to collect but this is a good start.
And if you are more into history here are two great books to look at (while you search for your own jeep or save up the money to buy the parts you need!): Project Management in History: The First Jeep (Project Management in History Series) (Volume 1)
and Jeep – Its development and procurement under the Quartermaster Corps, 1940-1942. Both are pretty good reads and include a lot of foot notes or end notes so you can do your own research. Order them all from Amazon.com or any book seller today!
