The M3A1 Scout Car, produced by White Motor Company of Cleveland, Ohio, served as the US Cavalry's primary scouting and reconnaissance vehicle during the early days of the US entry into WWII. A powerful Hercules engine, four-wheel drive, and relatively light weight gave the vehicle both impressive on-road speed and reasonable off-road maneuverability. Typically armed with a trio of heavy and light machine guns, the vehicle was not intended to "slug it out" with the enemy, but rather to locate the enemy and, through its impressive array of radio equipment, report the positions to more heavily armed forces.

Through dozens of archival photos, including previously unpublished images, as well as details of some of the finest existing examples, this iconic vehicle is explored and its history is explained. Part of the Legends of Warfare series.

Book Features:

  • Photographic history of the design, development, and deployment of the White M3A1 Scout Car.
  • US Cavalry's primary scouting and reconnaissance vehicle during the early days of the US entry into WWII.
  • Profusely illustrated with scarce archival photographs, including previously unpublished images.
200 colour and b/w photographs
