Both of these books are great reference books. They may be dated with some information but they were the first books written to help the WW2 jeep collector figure out exactly what he had. You really should add all three All American Wonder books to your collection.
Volume III is really pretty good but would have been better if it had stopped at WW2. This book continues on into the the Hummer era. So it is rather comprehensive in its’ jeep history coverage. Vol III can be a bit hard to find. Last time I looked it was published by Reddick Enterprises.

During WW2 the white star was used as the national symbol to mark vehicles. Vehicles also had “USA” and a registration number. These can make a great Christmas gift. It’s not to early to start shopping.

My jeep makes tracks but nothing like this!
During the war it seems as if just about everything was tried or tested. This includes a jeep with complete tracks.
You can find out more about rare jeeps from WW2 in the following book:
Both books are by Mark Askew and are excellent resources. The first book entitled Rare WW2 Jeep Photo Archive 1940-1945 includes a ton of photos of specialized jeeps. The second book entitled Rare WW2 Jeep: Following On No. 1. Consider adding them to your collection of books today.
