Berlin, May 1945: The majestic entrance to a building in the German capital bears all the scars of the bitter fighting. Parked -- and ruined -- in front of the building is a Volkswagen Schwimmwagen, literally a "VW Swim Wagon." Otherwise known as Type 166, this VW remains the most numerous mass-produced amphibious car in history. Only 163 are known by the Schwimmwagen Registry to remain today, and only 13 have survived without restoration work.

The Light Tank M24 was an American light tank used during the later part of WWII and in postwar conflicts including the Korean War and, with the French, in the War in Algeria and the First Indochina War. In British service it was given the service name Chaffee, after the United States Army General Adna R. Chaffee, Jr., who helped develop the use of tanks in the United States armed forces ~
