World War II Army Engineer Fire Fighting Platoon members who would like to see again and today's Army Engineer Fire Fighters who like to see the fire apparatus of that war will find Portrayal Press' "U.S. Army Fire Trucks At War" an excellent publication. Either group as well as WW II Army Engineer fire truck collector/restorers wishing to see all the vehicles (wheeled, tracked, towed and amphibious) of that war will be interested in Portrayal Press' reproductions of Technical Manual 9-2800 of September 1943 and October, 1947, "Standard Military Motor Vehicles" and "Military Vehicles".
