Tractors of Europe The illustrated Guide is a book By Andrew Morland and Peter Henshaw, Published by Haynes. The Authors are both specialist in transport journalism. The book covers a large number of the smaller tractor makers of Europe, with a photo of at least on tractor by each make. The info on each one is not a comprehensive in depth history of each but a basic locality and what they built from when to when, overview of each. Most of these makes only lasted a few years before dropping production during WW II, or if post war stopping in the 1970 when the bigger firms took over with rising horse power and increased safety requirements made Research and development too expensive for most, and reduced sales as the global makes bought out some local names.
