I love to read books about WW2 jeeps, don't you?

I can’t get enough books about the WW2 jeep.  Can you?

51pajnbh2jl_sl160_Amazon.com: Jeeps at War: Robert A. Fletcher This is a cute book written and illustrated by the Fletcher family.  In fact three generations of Fletchers collaborated to create the book.  The book is great for children or those casually interested in jeep facts.  The book claims that 350,000 jeeps were produced for the US and that 250,000 were built for use by our allies.  One of the many drawings shows what looks like a WW2 jeep with a postwar winter enclosure with doors.  Other facts are just as strained, “jeeps were droopped by parachutes or delivered by gliders.” Really? The only evidence I’ve ever seen is that jeeps were delivered by gliders.The book is in my collection and I won’t part with it.  It’s nearly perfect for children who won’t get caught up in the details but will enjoy the story line and the pictures.  You can find this book at Amazon.com – Jeeps at War.
