For any Jeep enthusiast, young or old, who wants to understand the beginings of the Jeep and the history of Jeeps used during wartime, Jeeps at War
is an engaging story that explains the legacy. Jeeps at War
is both an educational and entertaining book for young readers and their parents. It portrays Jeep history, from design and engineering to how it was used during World War II.
This hardcover book is also the story of our courageous men and women who served America during the four year World War II period from 1941 to 1945. Through teamwork and their undaunted faith, our military and their Jeeps were a symbol of our culture.
Rich with Jeep history and detailed illustrations, this book is a must-have for any Jeep family. Your children, young and old, will gain a better understanding of how "it all began" while appreciating the historical significance of this "general purpose vehicle" now known as the Jeep. The illustrations depict Jeeps and their usage in the military, from helping to build runways, to moving planes on aircraft carriers, to bringing the mail to the guys on the front.
The detailed history sounds as if it was written by someone who experienced the war, and indeed it was. Jeeps at War is the result of a family project by three generations of Fletchers: Bob, a veteran, his son Rob, his daughter Brenda and his grandson Tom. Together they have put together a book rich with character, history and significance to any Jeep or military history enthusiast. We are pleased to be able to offer this book to our customers.
