The L 2 H 43 and L 2 H 143, better known by the nickname given to it by the troops that used it "Krupp-Protze"" (Krupp Boxer), was a specialized multi-purpose designed six-wheeled 6x4 (six wheel, 4 wheel drive) German light off road truck and artillery tractor produced between 1934 and 1941. It was fitted with the Krupp M-304 flat four engine, a 4-cylinder horizontally opposed petrol engine that originally delivered 55bhp but was upgraded to deliver 60bhp in 1936. The Krupp Boxer saw extensive service on all of the operational fronts where the German army was engaged. This book covers the Krupp-Protze in great photographic detail focusing on the trucks and their crews as they dealt with the conditions and circumstances they found themselves in.
