Land Rovers in British Military Service - Coil Spring Models 1970 to 2007 is a must or those interested in the coil-sprung Land Rovers that have served (and still serve) with the British armed forces.
This book covers a wide variety of Land Rover models including the Series 110, 90, and 127 models, their Defender model successors, the first-generation of Range Rover and Discovery models, and of course, the Wolf XD derivatives. Coverage is deliberately ended at 2007 to protect the current range of models used by the British military. This unique book contains extensive illustrations and descriptions of the British military's uses and modifications of these vehicle models along with comprehensive vehicle lists and contract details. This book is the sequel to British Military Land Rovers, the leaf-sprung models, by the same two authors.
