Format: Hardcover
The book contains hundreds of photograhps of mainly the BMW R12 and some of the R75. All photographs are taken in Worldwar II and represent valuable historic information on how these bikes were used in combat. It also reveals the strategies being used by motorcycle companies and shows some of the human suffering of this era. Furthermore it contains valuable technical information, drawings and exploded views of the BMW R75. Highly recommended to anyone interested in this part of the history or for those who are involved in BMW R12 or R75 restoration.

I bought this book for my dad who is a BMW owner and WWII motorcycle enthusiast. He was looking for a book with a lot of pictures and history of how they were used during the war. When he got the book he was extremely happy with the amount of information and pictures and kept asking me where I found this book. Most of the pictures are action photos and in non-blurry condition. I was thrilled to find this book without having prior knowledge of WWII BMWs and taking a chance on buying a book I couldn't look at before purchasing.

First, let me say that I am happy I bought the book. There are many pictures and it covers the various models. I was hoping for more info on how they held up, maintenance, mechanical diagrams, etc. Also some stories from the soldiers/riders would have been good too.
