The three-pointed star. Magic. Mystique. Mercedes-Benz.

With
its legendary performance and quality, Mercedes-Benz is one of the most
recognizable brands in existence. The first book to examine
Mercedes-Benz as a brand phenomenon, Enduring Passion provides a
fascinating look at how the brand developed and the myths and realities
surrounding it as it faced the global convulsions of war, mergers, and
economic uncertainty. Handsomely produced in a large format and richly
illustrated with previously unpublished photographs, Enduring
Passion
is the life story of the Mercedes-Benz brand and how its
iconic symbol became a synonym for power and elegance.
