Because of the limited air-lifting means, the pool of divisional transport vehicles was reduced to just five types: jeep, weapons carrier, Command & recon. Car, Ambulance and GMC truck.
Like the majority of American military vehicles, all these vehicles had four- or sixwheel drive and their mechanical parts were to a great extent standardized. Apart from the jeeps wich were airtransportable (by Waco or Horsa gliders), all the other vehicles were brought in by sea. (with mostaly the red ball express)
This website is dedicated to all Allied Paratroopers of World War Two. They became a 'Band of Brothers' who enlisted for a new type of warfare. They jumped into occupied Holland on September 17th 1944 like Angels from the Sky. We will honor their heritage.
