David Doyle’s earliest published works appeared in periodicals aimed at the historic military vehicle restoration hobby. This was a natural outlet for the collector, whose collection includes ten Vietnam-era vehicles. By 1999, this included regular features in leading hobby publications, appearing regularly in US, English, and Polish magazines.Since 2003, over 100 of his books have been published. While some concern aircraft and warships, volumes on military vehicles, meticulously researched by David and his wife Denise, remain the genre for which he is most recognized. This recognition peaked in 2015, when he was presented the coveted Bart Vanderveen Award by the Military Vehicle Preservation Association, given in recognition of, “… the individual who has contributed the most to the historic preservation of military vehicles worldwide.”
