Amphibious vehicle books written in German

Title Writer Year ISBN Cover - Publisher
Mit dem Auto baden gehen René Pohl 1998 Antiquarian HC Heel-Verlag
Mit dem Auto baden gehen Entwicklung, Geschichte und Technik der Schwimmwagen.
Try that to sell in a mostly English market.

It is a book about old and new amphibs with a great many (sometimes colour) photo's.

Rene wanted to do an English version but he was not allowed to publish in English because his German book did not sell well enough. (they did not print enough.)

The highest asking prise for a good second hand that I have seen was a 150 Euro.
not bad for a book that costed 30 Euro when new.


Schwimmwagen PKW & LKW Hasso Erb 1988 Antiquarian HC Motorbuch verlag
Schwimmwagen PKW & LKW It is about amphibs car & trucks, military, civil, and prototypes.

Also written in German,  50 % of the book is BW photo.

Relative speaking if "Mit dem Auto baden gehen"
is the new testament then "Schwimmwagen PKW & LKW"
Is the old testament.
But like I said it is all relative. ;-)

Yes, it is great to be multi linguistic. But best is to be happy with your life.
Kraftfahrzeuge und Panzer Werner Oswald 1970 3613023709 HC MotorBook Verlag
Kraftfahrzeuge und Panzer der Reichswehr Wehrmacht und Bundeswehr The complete title reads:

Do you know amphibious books or translations that I have missed let me know Hans Rosloot
If the ISBN does not lead to a shop that sells a NEW book it is "Antiquarian" to me.
