Built in 1934, Andre Citroen's legendary car had a rich and stunning career due to the events which plunged the world into war five years later. Thousands of them joined the French Army during the Phoney War then went through the trials and tribulations of war. Very much in spite of itself, the"Traction" (front wheel drive) changed sides and the Germans, who had a particular taste for it, used them all throughout Europe. By the end of 1942 it was once again serving under French colours, this time engaged successfully in the Tunisian Campaign, appearing there in strange armoured versions. Then it was the Liberation of France, the time of the Maquis, white stars and the three letters"FFI" which proliferated all over the bodywork. Citroen's marvel became one of the symbols of France's rebirth. A complete visual epic using exceptional documentation: 250 period photos, plus more than 25 colour profiles showing authentic military markings. The book all Citroen Traction Avant buffs and all amateurs of automobile and military history have been waiting for. About the Authors: Bertrand de Lamotte, a Traction fan ever since he was young, is the foremost French specialist of this car in all its military versions. For twenty years now Francois Vauvillier has imposed himself as the historian of motorised units in the French Army during the first half of the 20th Century French Language
