The Ford Bronco is a sport utility vehicle that was produced from 1966 to 1996, with five distinct generations. The Bronco permanently entered American popular culture on June 17, 1994, when a white 1992 model owned and driven by Al Cowlings with O. J. Simpson, who was wanted for the murders of his ex-wife and her friend, attempted to elude the Los Angeles Police Department in a low-speed chase, which was nationally televised and viewed by millions nationwide. This is complete story from conception through discontinuation in 1996, told by historian (and well-known "Ford guy") Paul McLaughlin utilizing his large collection of photographs, brochures, ads and other promotional material. Follow the Bronco's various incarnations from a small sport utility vehicle of the 1960s and 1970s into the larger full-size Bronco of the 1980s and 1990s, special models like the "Bill Stroppe Edition", "Eddie Bauer Specials", the Bronco II and other juicy tidbits like the Bronco concept vehicle that Ford took on the car show circuit in 2005 (which got Bronco enthusiasts so excited that Ford was going to add a Bronco vehicle to their lineup once again). Also covered are the Broncos that were raced in off-road desert racing, Bronco toys and other collectibles, specification sheets, production numbers, and other interesting facts. Finally, a book for all Bronco enthusiasts!

One of the most popular pickup trucks to ever hit the highways and byways was the compact-sized Ford Ranger pickup that was in production from 1983 through 2011. During that twenty eight year period more than 6 million of them were produced and many of them are still working today. Covers all models of the Ranger from the XL to the sporty Splash, 2-wheel drive and 4-wheel drive models from the earliest days through to the last days when Ford decided to end production. Includes information about standard and optional equipment, specifications and other pertinent facts, over 300 photographs, and also includes Ford's compact-sized sport utility vehicle, the Bronco II, which was based on the Ranger platform. The Ford Motor Company is once again considering producing a small pickup truck like the Ranger to be marketed throughout North America.

GIs returning after World War II created an entirely new automotive market niche when they bought surplus Jeeps and began exploring the rugged backcountry of the American West. This burgeoning market segment, which eventually became known as sport utility vehicles (SUVs), numbered about 40,000 units per year with offerings from Jeep, Scout, Toyota, and Land Rover. In 1966, Ford entered the fray with its Bronco, offering increased refinement, more power, and an innovative coil-spring front suspension. The Bronco caught on quickly and soon established a reputation as a solid backcountry performer. In Baja, the legendary accomplishments of racers such as Parnelli Jones, Rod Hall, and Bill Stroppe further cemented the bobtail’s reputation for toughness. Ford moved upstream with the introduction of the larger Bronco for 1978, witnessing a huge increase in sales for the second-generation trucks. The Twin Traction Beam front end was introduced in the third generation, and further refinements including more aerodynamic styling, greater luxury, and more powerful fuel-injected engines came on board in the generations that followed. Through it all, the Bronco retained its reputation as a tough, versatile, and comfortable rig, both on and off the paved road. With the reintroduction of the Bronco for 2020, Ford is producing a vehicle for a whole new generation of enthusiasts that looks to bring modern styling and performance to the market while building on the 30-year heritage of the first five generations of the Bronco so dearly loved by their owners. From the development process and details of the first trucks through the 1996 models, author Todd Zuercher shares technical details, rarely seen photos, and highlights of significant models along with the stories of those people whose lives have been intertwined with the Bronco for many years. This book will have new information for everyone and will be a must-have for longtime enthusiasts and new owners alike! p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px Arial; color: #000000}

The struggle for Vietnam in the 1960s, in which the United States attempted to bolster the South against Viet Cong guerrillas backed by the Communist regime in the north, was to shock the world and divide a nation. In the defence of a theory – that if the South fell the whole region would fall to Communism – the United States spent $145,000 million at 1974 prices, her aircraft dropped eight million tons of bombs, and her armed forces suffered 46,370 fatalities (900,000 North Vietnamese and Viet Cong were also killed). The Illustrated History of the Vietnam War is a timely account of the 6,000-day conflict in Southeast Asia. Illustrated throughout with both colour and black and white photographs that bring the conflict to life, the lucid, authoritative text includes eye-witness accounts of the battles and incidents of America’s undeclared war. The Illustrated History of the Vietnam War provides a graphic and compelling account of one of the most brutal conflicts of modern history.
