The fruit of the seven years’ research, this is the first of a series devoted to the vehicles and crossing equipment used by the German pioneers during World War Two, a theme neglected by military specialists until now. This book now fills the gap, tracing the development of amphibious vehicles from the initial hesitations in the thirties to the secret projects at the end of the war which remained on the drawing board.

Illustrated with thirty or so color profiles and more than 200 black and white period photographs, of which a hundred or so are as yet unpublished, this book is the new reference for as yet relatively unstudied subjects such as:

  • The Trippelwagen amphibious cars and how they evolved
  • The Land-Wasser-Schleppers in all its forms
  • The L.W.S. II Panzerfähre
  • The Skoda LWS III Project
  • Amphibious trailers

A historian and model-maker, Rodolphe Roussille has specialized for more than ten years now in engineers’ vehicles and equipment, and in the secret weapons developed by the Allies and the Axis forces during WWII; he is the author of numerous articles on the subject.
