Two “Popular Science” Articles On The Jeep
Today we have two articles from 1945 that were originally published in Popular Science magazine. The articles discuss the widespread roles of the jeep on both the war front and the soon to be home front. In May 1945, “Fighting Welders Work Battle-Line Miracles” discusses the situations in which welder equipped MBs have helped to decide the course of the war whether it be repair work or some on the spur of the moment fabrication duties to build something which wasn’t available out of what scrap was available. Three months later Popular Science published the article “Meet The Postwar Jeep” about decidedly more domestic chores around the farm and home.
In either case, the jeep shone whatever its responsibilities. You can view the full articles as well as other magazine articles here.
