The first illustrated history of Czech tractor manufacturer Zetor. An account of the impressive development of Czech engineering and one of the best known Czechoslovakian industrial groups, Zbrojovka Brno. It tells the fascinating story of how an arms manufacturer in Brno, the “Manchester” of Moravia, turned tractor maker after World War II. In a nutshell the book presents the development of the Zetor tractor range from 1945 onwards. Since that year 1.2 million tractors have been sold all over the world including licence production in Asia, the Middle East and Africa.
