I saw that there was only 1 review for the seller of this book, but it had only 1 star. I read the review, which did not discourage me, so I ordered it. I am a fire apparatus photographer and was looking for info on a specific model of Walter airport crash truck. Not only did the book give me the information I was looking for, but it also came the day after I ordered it. It is a real nice book!!!

I would recommend this book to any big truck fan but it is a must have if your into any of the 3 real plow truck maker's, Oshkosh, FWD and of course Walter Truck's. I've been in love with all 3 of the aforementioned trucks since I was a kid, my father used to bring me down to a dealer down in southern Maine that sold pretty much nothing but plow trucks. My uncle and his father owned an excavation bussines and I speant a lot of time at their shop and their 3 dump truck's so I knew when I saw my first Walter Snow Fighter with dual wings and a massive V-plow I knew they were no ordinary truck. I've spent quite a bit of time online looking for info on all 3 maker's and their are plenty of pictures but very little information about Walter trucks, Mr. Simiele must have done some serious digging to be able to write this book. Mark does a great job telling the history of Walter Trucks business, technical aspects of the trucks, and providing excellent quality, well captioned photographic examples of Walter's of every year, model and use. Although most people probably have never even heard of or seen a Walter truck those of use who have probably had the privilege most likely had ever only seen a variation of the Snow Fighter series of trucks but this book spends a great deal of time providing details on all of the different trucks they made over the years, I really enjoyed the one off truck's he dug up the story on.Read more ›

I was very pleased with both Walter book since they came a week after I ordered them. The first describes the companies interesting history as well as showcasing many of their trucks in original b&w pictures. As a fan of fire apparatus I was very pleased that they took a whole chapter to talk about them. I found a number of grammatical errors, but it's the information that counts!
