World War II (1939 to 1945), was the largest conflict the world has ever seen. It involved countries from every continent with land battles taking place in Europe, Asia and Africa. Different theatres were active at different times and involved different combatants, with Germany, Italy, Romania, Hungary and Japan forming the Axis Powers, and Great Britain, the Soviet Union, the United States, alongside France, Poland, and Canada forming the Allied Powers.
The main theatres of operation include Western Europe (1939-1941), the Eastern Front (1941-1945), North Africa (1940-1943), Western Europe (1943-1945) and the Far East (1940-1945). This period is probably the most popular in historical wargaming and Pendraken offers one of the largest selections of WWII products in 10mm scale, covering all major and most minor nations.
The jeep became the primary light wheeled transport vehicle of the United States military and its allies. It was the world's first mass-produced four-wheel drive car, manufactured in six-figure numbers; about 650,000 units were built, constituting a quarter of the total U.S. non-combat motor vehicles produced during the war, and almost two-thirds of the 988,000 light 4WD vehicles produced, counted together with the Dodge WC series. Large numbers of jeeps were provided to U.S. allies, including Russia at the time — aside from large amounts of 1-1/2- and 2-1/2-ton trucks, some 50,000 jeeps and 25,000 3/4-ton vehicles were provided to Russia during WWII — more than Nazi Germany's combined total production of their Volkswagen vehicles, the Kübelwagen and the Schwimmwagen.
Jeeps were used as prime movers for 37mm AT guns.
