David Doyle is an American writer on historic military vehicles, hardware, aircraft and warships, who has written over 100 books,[citation needed] published with a variety of publishers. Since 2015, he also sells through his own website.[2]

Biography[edit]

Doyle's interest in military vehicles was sparked as a boy, when his father gave him a ride in an M211, 2½-Ton, 6×6, GMC Truck.[3] Years later, David began restoring, researching and collecting post-World War II vehicles, with an emphasis on Vietnam-era special-purpose trucks, motivated by a ".. life-long interest in history, things mechanical and the sacrifices of [U.S.] servicemen .." [2]

Doyle started writing contributions for enthusiast publications, focusing on historic military vehicle restoration, with articles appearing regularly in the U.S., U.K., France and Poland by 1999. The articles led to books, first of all the 2003 catalog of U.S. historic military vehicles.[2]

Doyle is a member of the Military Vehicle Preservation Association (MVPA), American Truck History Society (ATHS) and former member of the Society for the Preservation and Appreciation of Antique Motor Fire Apparatus and The Studebaker Drivers Club.[3] He is also a regular contributor for Military Vehicles Magazine and Army Motors,[3] and editor of History in Motion (formerly Supply Line),[1] the newsletter of the Military Vehicle Preservation Association.[4]

In 2015, Doyle received the MVPA's 'Bart Vanderveen Award' for his contributions the historic preservation of military vehicles worldwide.[5]
In 2017, Doyle purchased the remaining inventory of Ampersand Publishing co., which had been the publisher of Military Miniatures in Review magazine, and over 25 of Doyle's books.[2]
