Casemate Publishers has released a book on the Hungarian Armored Car Csaba 39/40M.

The book is organized as follows.

  • Introduction
  • Straussler and his designs
  • Design and development of the Csaba armored car
  • Production
  • Armored car units, organization
  • Operational History
  • Camouflage and Markings
  • Bibliography

The flow of the book is chronological by the nature of how it was written, starting with the design of the vehicle by Nicholas Straussler (while living in the United Kingdom) and quickly moves on the production, units organization and operational history with the Hungarian Army.

There are some color profiles which highlight the different camouflage schemes used by the Hungarian Army during the early years of World War 2, plus all the different national markings used in the pre-Barbarossa era..

Most of the book is devoted to the history of the vehicle and there are plenty of technical drawings from the armored car and period pictures providing you with all the information (plus inspiration!) to build, camouflage and weather your armored vehicle.

This book is your “one-stop” shop for your Csaba 39 and 40M. You will not be disappointed.


I would like to thank Casemate Publishers and IPMS/USA for the review sample.
