Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

Maurice Kelly had a public school education and subsequently matriculated before going into the armed forces, where he was staff on a troopship. He was initially employed in the aircraft industry as a development engineer, and was a member of a team involved in the making of the boundary layer system on the Blackburn Buccaneer NA-39 seaborne fighter; other projects included the manufacture of the first atomic bomb release mechanism that was made by hand, together with various items for the Blue Streak programs. In 1960, he went to sea as an engineering officer in the British Merchant Navy and the Royal Research Service, as well as the Marina Mercante de Republica de Panama, remaining in this capacity until 1979. Since leaving seafaring he has worked as an ISO9000 quality consultant and as a technical author. He has five published works on engineering subjects, and specializes in historical road transport.

Good book on an obscure subject 7. August 2011
Von James D. Crabtree - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Verifizierter Kauf
During the existence of the USSR the Party elite desperately needed a vehicle to drive about in, one which reflected the importance of the offices they held and which would allow them to move quickly amongst the proletariat. So, when the old Rolls Royces and other pre-Revolutionary vehicles began to wear out the Soviets began construction of their own limos. The designs were obviously influenced by American designs, especially after the 1950s. This should come as no surprise since American auto makers helped Soviet industry along in the 1920s and 1930s.

This book has some great illustrations and the information on the designs is pretty good, if somewhat disjointed at times. Heavy on data. Still, a good book on a rather obscure subject. If interested in cars, especially rare ones, you'll like this one.
Good content but poorly put together. 7. Mai 2015

Contrary to my belief, I will start with the good news first. The history of USSR vehicles has always been a special topic. I grew up there, but when I was younger, I didn't have nearly as much interest. This book has a very good amount of illustrations and covers the soviet limousines development history well. Even though this book was first published in 2011, I was hoping that the author would have included more information about the last of the ZIL limos. Google image search for ZIL 4104 shows dozens of color images of various editions of the car, but this book only includes one color photo. However, there are too many errors in this book. As the other reader pointed out, the author erroneously refers to the Ford's River Rouge Complex in Detroit, MI located in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Ouch! Though the most difficult aspect of reading this book was the improper spelling and grammar in Russian and the transliterations. Being a native Russian speaker, those kind of things jump out immediately. Also, page 48 starts a new paragraph without a proper indentation and with the lower case letter. I quadruple checked to make sure I didn't miss anything. Additionally, on page 50, there is a letter "n" missing from Soviet Union.
This is a great companion book to the early 1900's Russian car book ... 8. Februar 2015

This is a great companion book to the early 1900's Russian car book by Maurice A. Kelly. I was thrilled to find these books. It is difficult to find material covering this rare subject. I have thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. The illustrations are great and high quality with some really rare photos like the other companion book also. They try hard to make the rarest images as clear as possible and do a great job.
Nothing else out there like it 5. Dezember 2012

If you're a fan of Soviet limos, just buy it. I understand that there are a few inaccuracies (see the review on hooniverse.com for more details), but it's still a treasure trove. Plus, there's a chapter on Chinese limousines which is also informative.
Geographically Challenged 30. Oktober 2013

Early in the book, the author inaccurately states that Ford's River Rouge plant is in the state of Louisiana!

With that kind of glaring "common knowledge for a motorhead" error, how many other errors are in there?
