From the iconic Jeep to the ubiquitous Sherman, Allied forces depended upon the vehicles that American assembly lines produced. Both cursed and revered by those who depended on them, these “hunks of metal” were often named and even attributed with human-like qualities. Many, like the Jeep, became ensconced in popular culture. The Vehicles of War exhibit focuses on the equipment that was an integral part of daily life in World War II — often making the difference between life and death for the troops they served.
