Motorcycles started to enter military service in the early years of World War I. The conflict brought an enormous upsurge in the use of motorcycles in Europe and America. The first part of the book covers the motorcycle's history in detail, highlighting the varied roles military motorcycles have played, as well as how the vehicles have evolved over time. Next, there is a substantial A-Z directory focusing on 160 of the most important motorcycles, showing the incredible diversity of the types. This expertly written book, with its wealth of rare and previously unseen photographs, provides enthusiasts and historians with key information about these diverse and multi-tasking vehicles.
