As the first Chevrolet 1½ ton G2506 truck rolled off of a GM assembly line in late 1940, the United States military and private industry were over five years into a massive upgrade of America’s fighting machinery. This is the story of one of Chevrolet’s many contributions to that war effort: the 1½ Ton, 4x4 Truck, also known by its U.S. Army designation, G2506. A robust, reliable and versatile platform, the G2506 served in many roles throughout the world, from combat troop carrier, to transport, to mobile floodlight mount, radio truck, fire truck and even aerial gunnery practice vehicle. David Doyle has drawn on the vast archives of General Motors LLC, The National Archives and numerous other sources to carefully document the development, production and wartime US use of this iconic WW2 vehicle. This book contains over 600 photographs, many of which have never before been published, in their original, gorgeous, black and white, medium format clarity.
