The story of Leyland is one of 'rags to riches', but with an uncertain ending. The company started by producing small steam vehicles which could not even travel legally on the roads. However, the quality of its products improved steadily and,
as the need for commercial transport expanded throughout the 20th century, Leyland expanded with it.
The story of the company's recent financial troubles and its hoped-for recovery is told with depth and understanding by an author intimately connected with the truck world.
