Cars of the Soviet Union #2# The definitive history (2nd edition)

by Andy Thompson

This extraordinarily detailed study charts the history of Soviet cars from the birth of the Soviet Union in 1917 until its demise in 1990, with a conclusion about the post-Soviet era. It is the story of an insular, state-run car industry in which the carefully thought-out ideas of ministerial planners, rather than fickle customers in a free market, determined what cars were made in a country where the open road was often a 300-mile track across a windswept steppe. This is a fascinating book, full of rarely seen photographs and illustrations, largely in colour, that will interest all car enthusiasts.


  • Brave new roads: 1917-1945
  • From victory to Sputnik: 1945-1960
  • A car for every Dacha: 1960-1979
