Osprey New Vanguard 122 : HMMWV Humvee 1980-2005 : US Army Tactical Vehicle

The HMMWV, better known as the Humvee or Hummer, has set the world standard for army tactical vehicles since its introduction into the US Army in the 1980s. Designed to be the successor to the jeep of World War II with a greater load-bearing capacity, the Humvee has proven to be adaptable to a wide range of roles, including weapons carrier, missile launcher, command vehicle and other specialized types. This book traces the development and use of the Humvee and its variations, including the latest families of armoured Humvees used in Iraq in 2003-05, and its adoption in a peacekeeping role the world over. Text by Steven J Zaloga with illustrations by Hugh Johnson.
