Coinciding with the development of the Army's motorisation and the war in Libya, various armoured vehicles equipped with a machine gun, so-called "autoblindo mitragliatrici", were studied.

FIAT, Isotta-Fraschini and Bianchi tried their hand at designing models of greater or lesser success, but it was Ansaldo that created the vehicle that combined a more modern construction technique than the average of the period and an elegant line, combined with more than good efficiency, especially in the final stages of the First World War.

Various circumstances, well explained in the book, prevented its replacement by more advanced vehicles over the years, so the Lancia 1Z remained in service even in the 'roaring years' and the early years of the Second World War in which, however, it participated with only minor tasks.

An organic, thorough and recent treatment of these early vehicles in Italian has been lacking. This monograph intends to fill that gap.

In twelve chapters, the earliest and least successful armoured cars are presented, followed by the Lancia with an in-depth technical description of its long employment from 1915 to 1945.

All in 104 pages, with eight technical data sheets, a dozen black and white technical drawings and 110 photos, including six dedicated to the only preserved Lancia still in fairly good condition in Italy.

A chapter on colours and markings is reserved for the modelling world, as well as an extensive examination of the 1/35 scale models that have recently come out on the market, among which the only plastic Lancia 1ZM stands out. Some fifteen colour profiles by Ruggero Calò give a vivid impression of the vehicles of that category and era.
