For hundreds of years, horses were the main way to transport goods across land, but in the twentieth century, first steam and then internal combustion engines revolutionised road haulage. Chris Woodcock charts the history of motor road haulage in Britain, featuring the design and development of the vehicles, competition from the railways, and the coming of the motorway age, the services that kept the trucker going, from garage to transport cafe, and the men themselves. Illustrated throughout with period photographs, this is a feast of nostalgia for anyone who has enjoyed a career in the industry, and a real eye opener for anyone who has not.
