2 1/2 ton 6x6 Amphibian Truck (GMC DUKW-353)

This wonderful manual covers the famous DUKW amphibious truck, issued by most Allied forces during the Second World War, and used particularly in river crossing operations (such as the Seine and Rhine) as well as in flooded areas. It was a workhorse particularly liked by both users and those who planned its use, being able to transport men and equipment across water barriers long before replacement bridges could be built, allowing river crossing operations more freedom than ever before. The manual covers all types of this multi-role load carrier and every technical aspect of using and maintaining the vehicle. Profusely illustrated with many photographs and some really valuable line drawings.
