This is not almost everything mentioned in the Environment War Two report but would be a superior begin for any collector.  There are quite a few jeep specific publications and most of these appear to be missing from the normal jeep collectors library. Possibly anyone is setting on these and thinking of publishing them “someday”.  Maybe they will appear ahead. And as mentioned just before there are original articles or blog posts from company publications, non-public and public that make intriguing reading and assortment.  Several are still out there. Happy looking.
