The full title is Facing Forward: The History of Waukesha Engine 1906-2006. This was written by Michael J. Goc (the author appears to be some sort of specialist in Wisconsin history, if his other books are any gauge), and was published by New Past Press in 2006. This 158-page hardbound book covers the history of the company with anecdotes, graphic art, and hundreds of photos. Waukesha was one of the suppliers of engines in International trucks and tractors from the early 1900s into the 1940s. Like IHC, the history of Waukesha Engine is the history of American industry from the start of the twentieth century to the dawn of the twenty-first. If you are into the really old trucks, then you probably will like this book. Or even if you just like engines. Besides the standard booksellers, this book is also available directly from Waukesha (http://stores.imagemark.com/WaukeshaEngine/ProductDetail.aspx?ProductID=000000000000113420&CatalogID=0000), although I suspect it might be cheaper from a bookseller. The ISBN-10 is 0938627694, the ISBN-13 is 978-0938627692, and the Waukesha product number is 113420.
