IDF Jeeps

This album tells the story of the Jeep in Israeli service from the very start of the State of Israel, and even before. Carefully researched and detailed captions put the photos in their historical context.

When did the Jeep appear in Israel? The British brought them in, to be followed by deliveries from overseas, as Jewish acquisition teams traveled the globe. Both before and after Independence, these teams managed to acquire weapons and vehicles from everywhere.

It details all types of Jeep including Willys MB/Ford GPW, CJ-2A, CJ-3A, M38, CJ-5, M38A1, M170, M606 and CJ-3B.

58 pages, 162 photos.

Tom Gannon is well known for his research and writing on Israeli military vehicles. Trackpad are very proud that Tom has chosen to continue his work on the subject with us.
This is the first volume of two giving a comprehensive look at the unique Israeli Sherman-based Artillery vehicles. The book looks at these unique vehicles beginning with the improvisations forced upon Haganah and the fledgling IDF in the late 1940s and onwards.
The two volumes discuss the contribution of primarily, self-propelled artillery in the development of TZAHAL (Tsva Ha’Haganah le’Yisra’el, Hebrew for Israel Defense Force or IDF), as it was paired with another significant part of IDF history, the Sherman tank.
This subject is best understood by also discussing what came immediately before the Sherman-based artillery weapons in IDF service. Actually, the use of weapons more powerful than rifles and machine guns in the region pre-dates the establishment of TZAHAL which did not occur until May 26, 1948, nearly two weeks after independence.
Vehicles in this first volume are: M7 Priest and TOMAT M50 155mm.
