Here’s an announcement: Herbert R. Rifkind’s book “Jeep -Its Development and Procurement Under the Quartermaster Corp 1940 -1942″ is available. It is in the original manual script format. Photographs inserted were chosen to replicate the ones that Rifkind originally chose. Some were left out because I could not find the image or because the image appeared to be from a copyrighted source.
This edition contains the complete text which the 1983 and 1988 did not have. This version did not have as many pen and ink changes present as the 1983 version. I think you will find it more readable then the British (1988) version. You can find the book at on line booksellers like Amazon.com and Createspace.com–and it should be available everywhere on line. The retail price is 19.95. 228 pages (including an introduction that I added).
