I just love olive drab. I get goose pimples just thinking about it ! Some people say it is a disease. Tie an olive drab ribbon around the old oak tree until a cure is discovered.

Olive Drab Disease describes the terrible existence of men and women who crave things olive drab. The disease manifests itself primarily in seeking out military vehicles and obscure parts to retore same. We seek a cure.   But for now only the symptoms can be treated by supply things olive drab to those affected.

A jeep in New Foundland - 1942.

A jeep in Newfoundland – 1942.

Soldiers of the U.S. 3rd Infantry (the “Old Guard”) are shown on maneuvers in the summer of 1942 as part of the defense of St Johns, Newfoundland. The Jeep is mounted with a small-caliber cannon and a Browning M1917A1 machine gun. If you look closely at the grille you can see that this is an early MB, often called a “slat-grille.”

How many jeeps were produced during WW2?

How many jeeps were produced during WW2? Well, about 25,000 of the type pictured above. These are the so-called “slate grille” Willys MB jeeps.

Grandpa's War Pony

Grandpa’s War Pony

Grandpa’s War Pony is a book I wrote for my grandchildren to explain what a WW2 jeep was and how it was used.

Perhaps the greatest instrument of war to come out of the Second World War and forged into something still in use today is arguably—the 1/4-ton reconnaissance car or jeep. The jeep during WW2 was a new and speedy little vehicle designed to get in and go where motorcycles couldn’t go. It was the baby of a little company called American Bantam Car Company and the U. S. Army’s Infantry Branch.

The book is filled with colorized photos that have been stylized in a “cartoon” manner to help maintain children’s interest.  It’s a great gift for Christmas for young and old jeep fans!

Grandpa’s War Pony is available from Amazon.com and other booksellers.
