Vehicles of War

At The National WWII Museum

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. These vehicles were an integral part of daily life in World War II—often making the difference between life and death for the troops they served.

Note: Our vehicles are prone to move locations due to a number of circumstances, including special events, construction, etc. Please check with a Museum representative to see where they will be located during your visit.
