An outstanding book giving detailed, in-depth coverage of all the tractors produced by the British company, Marshalls of Gainsborough, during its prime between 1930 and the end of the 1960s. The story opens with Marshalls' worldwide success with steam engines in the 19th century, and a short epilogue brings the story up to date.
Marshalls built their tractors to last. The Field Marshall became the favourite power source of contractors for threshing mahinces. In association with John Folwer & Co (Leeds), Marshall produced diesel tractors with tracks which became one of the most popular machines for heavy and difficult soils.
Sectional diagrams, rare archive photographs and company publicity material provide full visual documentation, and there are numerous colour photographs.
