Peter J's place // Marmon-Herrington trucks topic

We are having a discussion as to whether or not some M-H trucks made it to Russia before, during, or after WW 2???

Any information you might have would be appreciated.

I'm shure I have never heard anything about Marmon-Herrington here in Russia.

Read that tread with interest.

I need to note the guy Sergey "Trucker" is Russian, that's why he discussed actively about the Red army.

You can see the pictures of the rocket units. There is a book "Автонашествие на СССР" published in Russia just in 2011, lots of interesting pictures including those.

In general Lend-Lease theme was not popularized during the Cold war time, many facts were lost.

As for Lend-Lease vehicles, Russians must take the rest of them back to the States, and many of them got out.

I was told the story and read it later also, that vehicles were collected in ports, special American comission revised them, requiering all accessories in place and paint Ok, next load them on boat and transport onto a big ship in a harbour. That big ship was equipped with press to make steel cubes of vehicles.

Many were not taken back but sent into far regions for hard work and away from journalist cameras.

So most people in Russia know only Jeep, Dodge,Studebaker and Harley-D. Because they came in greatest number.

There is too much interesting in the net.

You just need to find a correct place.

I saw that site, it gets bigger since I was there last.

All the info of the kind wasn't published so wide just 10 years ago.

At least in open sources.

"......." was the name of the book in Russian.

It was avalible in the net as a full scan half a year ago. To my great surprize.

But that bootleg copy dissapeared.
