Daimler-Benz (now DaimlerChrysler) has its roots in the early experimentation with the use of the internal combustion engine by three men: Carl Benz, Gottlieb Daimler, and William Maybach. Their shops in the late 1880s laid the foundation of what would become the German auto industry. But WW1 and its aftermath devastated their co. By the early 1920s it became apparent that the only way to survive was a merger. Thus, on June 29, 1926, the stockholders gave approval to the new co., Daimler-Benz, which led to the birth of one of the world's best-known brands: Mercedes-Benz. In this history of the marque and the co., the beauty and power of the car comes alive, from the earliest models to the first crop of 21st-cent. Mercedes-Benzes.
