In 1919, André Citroën launches its first car 10 HP in several versions, including a light commercial. Soon after following models derived that give rise to other variants including autochenilles, small buses and even a vineyard tractor. It will take ten years before the arrival of a real "heavyweight" - although the term chosen by the manufacturer may seem optimistic for this first truck of just 1.5 tonnes of payload. With C 6 and patterns that follow it, Citroën is building a robust reputation. Trucks, buses or bus, both versions of "factory" of bodied vehicles or converted into 4 x 4 by specialized companies, in France and abroad, this book examines the production of the brand the double chevron from its relatively modest beginnings to the latest models of K seventies built closely with Berliet. With such a rich and varied iconography (photographs and illustrations 600 mostly unpublished), this book recreates the atmosphere of the time, the road and the France of old. But the reader will also discover Citroën prototypes and projects that have never emerged.
