In July 1941, Willys Overland carried off the contract responding to a strict specification sheet concerning a small multi-purpose cross-country vehicle, easy to drive, to upkeep and to repair. Assembling was straightforward, using just the necessary parts, the jeep was born: a “great looking” perennial vehicle. The vehicle -so specific in shape- was seen on all the theatres of operations. Present as from the first day on the Normandy beaches in June 1944, the jeep was -from then on- associated in people’s minds to the Liberation.
