I and my younger son are collectors of International pickups. We found this book to be very informative about the light trucks of International Harvester. The information was based on improvements made to each model year and material about how well each model sold. An good companion book would be International Trucks (CRESTLINE) by F.W.Crismon

I found this book to be highly informative in the history of International's trucks. I was disappointed, however, that the author did not have the majority of the book focusing on the Scout. It was the Scout that is the most popular of IH's rigs but the author left a short section in the back about the Scouts. I was also disappointed that it did not have color pictures. Overall, the book is a great history and it includes some interesting old truck ads.

The subtitle is misleading:Semi-Trucks,Where are the Semi Trucks? a small very brief mention towards the end of the book,a black and white picture of a cabover,Despite International being a major player in the field it was looked over,nothing on the IH Eagle 4200/Transtar 4300/Transtar 4300/4370Brougham(my favorite) or on the transtar c/o(except the picture) or on the International C/O 9670(another Favorite of mine) the 9300/9370(the big bunk with window style another favorite of mine)Or the 9800 coe,9900IX(another good one) nothing,no fleetstar,no unistar,no stars. It is just Light duty trucks throughout and basically skips through such an important history,I am aware that Heavy trucks was not Always the focus,but it should have not been subtitled to include them. It is still worth a read if your A IH fan but don't expect much.

Great book if you're into classic International Pickups! I learned things I never knew about the history of the company and all the various trucks they made.

Book is broken into chapters covering every major model of pickup, a chapter on the Scout (15 pages ) and a short chapter on IH semi-trucks. If you are like me and interested in the 57-68 models, there isn't a huge about here for you. The chapter of the 57-60 model is only about 6 pages and the 61-68 model is about 10 pages. If you are locking for an overview of all models this hits the high spots and will work for you. If you are looking for more depth on a specific model, this isn't it.

Chapter 1: Origins, 2. Early Trucks, 3. 1921-1929 S Series, 4. 1930-1933 A and B Series, 5. C and D Series Trucks, 6. 1940-1949 K and KB Series, 7. 1950-1952 L Series, 8. R and S Series, 9. 1957- 1960 A and B series, 10. 1961-1968 Trucks, 11. 1969-1975 Trucks, 12. The Scout, 13. International's Medium and Heavy-Duty Trucks.
