A Bit of Aviation History

For history buffs, The Cars, Tanks, and Airplanes of World War II website provides a little insight into the equipment used for troop and supply transport. Military vehicles became a key part of the fight to capture territory, supplies, and enemy soldiers. Whether in the air or on the ground, the cars, tanks, and airplanes used during World War II had a great impact on a nation’s ability to successfully campaign against the enemy.
