Middle East trucking

In the sixties and seventies, overland transport to the Middle East was pioneered by those drivers brave enough to make the journey, following unmade roads through mountains, desert sands and snowdrifts whilst trying to avoid bandits and dealing with mechanical problems, border guards and war zones.

These books and DVDs give you an insight into the world of the Middle East trucker; the highs and lows, the comraderie and the beauty of the landscape.
