This is a historical account of the beginnings of the Ford tractor and how massed production of the units made them affordable. Stuart Gibbard goes into detail of how this early production (of all makes really) helped with food production in Britain and Europe at the end of WWI and how it helped with the war effort and also food production in Britain during WW2. The book is a good story and a reference volume all tied up into one and personally it has made me think how far and fast the technology in making these machines advanced in a space of less than 100 years. If you like Ford tractors then you will enjoy this book and also look out for all the other books Stuart has had published on turning the Ford skid units into other tractors and machinery.
