By 1945, at the end of a long war, Britain was desperate for new buses and coaches.  And, by the time the government permitted bus production again an almost insatiable demand had built up, and many companies new to making buses came into the business.  In this book the manufacturers ? large and small ? are dealt with in A-Z order: AEC, Albion, Atkinson, Austin, Bedford, Bristol, Commer, Crossley, Daimler, Dennis, Dodge, Foden, Ford, Guy, Jensen, Karrier, Leyland, Maudslay, Morris-Commercial, Rowe, Rutland, Seddon, Sentinel, Thrnycroft, Tilling-Stevens, Trojan, Vulcan. The author gives a brief history of each and then provides individual coverage of the models produced, using original material from brochures and advertisements for the illustrations., not only to identify the vehicles but also to give the flavor of the times when they were to be seen going about their business.  A companion volume to British Lorries 1945-1965 and British Vans and Pick-ups 1945-1965, this is not only a reliable and comprehensive reference book but also via its illustrations a pleasing evocation of earlier times on Britain?s roads and streets. beautiful printing and layout
