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.

I was pleased to hear that a good friend had received this book from his family for Christmas.  He really liked the book.  While it is too late for Christmas this year and perhaps too early for next year–you might like to get this book now.  It is great for kids of all ages or anyway with an interest inWW2 jeeps.

After a long drive in the Ford GPW, I like to curl up with a good read.

It wasn’t just the US Army that used jeeps during WW2.  The US Navy purchased jeeps as well.  In fact some with USN markings were used by the US Marines.

Army Tests BAntam Truck

American Bantam Car Company delivered the first vehicle that would soon come to be called the “jeep”.  Even the very first example has many characteristics of the original, general shape of the body, fold down windshield and lights inboard of the vendors.  It was also a very light vehicle and the Infantry loved it.  Though first, through an unfortunate serious of events, the Bantam lost out to Willys.  The main event is often said that Bantam was too little and couldn’t meet production.  It is true that they were on their last legs when they got the first order.  Little known is that the Army directed them to slow production!  In the final analysis, Willys had the lowest bid and the government watchdogs forced the Army to give the contract to Willys instead of Ford.

I know I won’t get much sympathy from those in the Northern states or really cold parts of the world..but it was really cold this morning. Okay, so it was in the 40s.  Reminded me of my days in North Dakota and Alaska (on warmer days in the winter, anyway). Of course tomorrow it might be in the 60s or the 70s.  Go figure.
