Ein Buch über Militärfahrzeuge aus den USA? Hier finden Sie Bücher zur Geschichte, Technik und Einsatz amerikanischer Armeelastwagen bis 1945.

Dodge, sur les voies de la liberté

Au lendemain de Pearl Harbour, l'industrie d'outre-Atlantique mobilise toutes ses forces pour se consacrer à la seule production de guerre. Chrysler, un des trois grands constructeurs automobiles, s'engage alors résolument dans de nombreux programmes d'armement : blindés, munitions, pièces d'artillerie, moteurs d'avions sortent massivement des usines du groupe.

Mais c'est surtout dans la gamme des véhicules tactiques légers que Chrysler va, à travers sa filiale Dodge et avec sa camionnette 4x4 de 750 kg, manifester tout son savoir-faire. Dénommé Weapons Carrier, le véhicule bénéficie de l'expérience acquise depuis 1939 avec des camionnettes régulièrement améliorées tant au niveau de la mécanique et des performances que de la silhouette générale.

Le Weapons Carrier s'est décliné dans de multiples versions - transport de personnel, sanitaire, radio, véhicule de commandement - et a été livré largement à l'US Army, mais aussi aux Alliés, britanniques, soviétiques ou français libres.
Robustes et fiables, les camionnettes Dodge ont continué à servir bien après le conflit, dans de nombreuses armées occidentales comme dans le secteur civil où, après leur réforme, elles ont poursuivi une nouvelle et longue carrière.

U.S. Army Chevrolet Trucks in World War II : 1 1/2-Ton, 4x4

Between 1940 and 1945, large numbers of trucks of all categories were delivered to the U.S. Army by the Chevrolet Motor Division of General Motors. Over 160,000 of these trucks were the G-506 light four-wheel drive trucks - which became the standard 1 1/2-ton, 4x4 truck for both the U.S. Army and Army Air Corps during the war. In addition, many more thousands were delivered to Allied forces as part of the Lend-Lease program, including nearly 50,000 delivered to the Soviet Union.

Tough, well-built and more agile than the deuce and a half, the Chevy 1 1/2-ton played a part in every theater of operations during the war. Its durability and mechanical reliability made it ideal for a wide range of missions. Not for nothing did Chevy advertise the trucks during the war as "Vehicles of victory."

More than 75 years after it was designed, the small Chevrolet truck is still a favourite with collectors. This fully illustrated book details the different series of trucks and their many uses within the U.S. Army including cargo trucks, panel delivery trucks for the Signal Corps, dump trucks for engineers, telephone trucks, tractors, bomb service trucks for the air force. It also covers their part in the Lend-Lease program, and their continued use after the war.

GMC DUKW - America's Amphibious Duck in World War II and Korea (Legends of Warfare)

The General Motors Corporation DUKW was without a doubt the most successful amphibious military vehicle ever constructed. This is due in large part to the enormous amount of scientific and engineering talent that was devoted to the project. Included in the design team were America's Cup winner Rod Stephens, adventurer and environmentalist Dennis Puleston, and scientist and engineer Palmer C. Putnam.
The DUKW was so successful and so widely used that Gen. Dwight Eisenhower described it as "one of the most valuable pieces of equipment produced by the United States during the war."

This book chronicles the development and use of these vehicles from concept to combat in WWII and Korea.
Through dozens of archival photos, many never before published, as well as detailed photographs of some of the finest existent examples of surviving vehicles, these iconic armored fighting vehicles are explored, and their history is explained.

GMC DUKW-353 Amphibian Truck - Technical Manual (TM 9-802)

A modification of the 2 1/2-ton "deuce", the DUKW amphibious truck was designed in 1942 by a team that included a British sailor, an American yacht builder and an MIT engineer. Powered by a GMC Straight-6, 270 cubic inch engine, the DUKW's six drive wheels allowed it to move up to 50 mph on the road and at roughly 6 mph in water.
It was the first vehicle ever designed to allow tire pressure to be adjusted from inside the cab, allowing it to operate easily and efficiently on sand, rock, gravel and paved roads. The vehicle lacked armor, but one in every four produced came equipped with a machine gun ring mount. Overall, the DUKW weighed 6.5 short tons empty and could carry 2.5 short tons or twelve soldiers.
The DUKW's career in combat was unique, being used to ferry supplies and men from ship to shore, and operating in flooded environments. It was used in landings in the Pacific and European Theaters, including at D-Day, and many were also used during the Korean War at Inchon.

Incidentally, the term "DUKW" is not a military term, but rather an acronym coined by General Motors. "D" stood for the year it was designed, 1942. "U" stood for "Utility", "K" for front wheel drive, and "W" for two powered rear axles.
Over 21, 000 DUKWs were built during WWII. Some remain in use today as amphibious tour buses.

Originally created in 1945, this War Department technical manual contains a full description of the DUKW and shows how to operate and maintain it.
Originally restricted, this 500+ page manual was declassified long ago and is here reprinted in book form. Care has been taken to preserve the integrity of the text.

Amphibian Truck Company - Field Manual (FM 55-150)

Created in 1944, this field manual explains the organization and operation of the Transportation Corps amphibian truck company and its DUKWs. The mission of the amphibian truck company was to aid the supply and evacuation operations of forces in areas where harbor and port facilities were inadequate or even totally lacking.
Thanks to its unique ability to operate on land and in the ocean, the DUKW made the impossible - possible. Over 21, 000 were built during WWII, and used with distinction in landing zones in both the Pacific and European Theaters, and in the Korean War at Inchon.

Chapters in this manual include: What is the DUKW?, safety precautions, operational maintenance, land operations, winching operations, water operations, towing in water, anchoring and mooring, piloting, cargo handling, visual signaling, special uses and unusual cargo, field operations, and more.
Originally labeled restricted, this manual was declassified long ago and is here reprinted in book form. Care has been taken to preserve the integrity of the text.

Les tracteurs & semi-remorques de l'U.S. Army

NEU

À la fin des années 1930, l'armée américaine était en pleine restructuration de ses unités et de sa flotte automobile, suscitant deux grandes approches dans le domaine du soutien logistique. Les partisans de la remorque ou du semi-remorque préconisaient une séparation physique entre la partie mécanique du camion traditionnel et la partie technique arrière, dédiée aux approvisionnements ou matériels spéciaux.

Un autre courant préférait des ensembles compacts et indissociables pour gagner du temps et assurer une réactivité optimale sur le terrain. Les deux types de camions furent finalement commandés pendant la Seconde Guerre mondiale, avec des camions complets destinés au front et des tracteurs et semi-remorques pour les lignes de communications et la zone des étapes.

Cette étude en français, réalisée par l'auteur, se concentre sur la seconde catégorie, comprenant divers équipements spécialisés pour le train, l'intendance, la cavalerie, le génie ou l'aviation.

Mack Truck 10-Ton 6 x 4 - Technical Manual (TM 9-818)

The Mack Model NR was a heavy truck constructed for military use from 1940 to 1945 by the Mack Manufacturing Corporation of New York U.S.A. The Model NR was mainly used to tow trailers carrying heavy equipment such as tanks and large bulldozers. It was also used to tow heavy field guns.
Its wide bogie axles and extra large tires were ideal for desert service, allowing them to "float" on the sand. Many Model NRs were supplied under the Lend-Lease Program to Great Britain, Australia, Russia and other Allied countries.

The Mack diesel engine in the Model NR was the result of nearly a decade of development work by the innovative company. It used the Lanova combustion chamber design. It produced 131 brake horsepower with 519 cubic inches of displacement. It offered a significant improvement in fuel economy, durability, driveability and torque.

Created in 1944, this technical manual TM 9-818 reveals a great deal about the Mack Model NR's design and capabilities. Originally labeled restricted, this manual was declassified long ago and is here reprinted in book form. Care has been taken to preserve the integrity of the text.
