The Autobiography of a Jeep (1943 Educational Film)

Less than 10 minutes. Entertaining! Watching this old film makes it clear that the white male made the sacrifices and won the war, diversity propaganda to the contrary.

The Autobiography of a “Jeep” is a 1943 propaganda film produced by the US Office of War Information. As its name might suggest, it is the story of parts of World War II told from the perspective of a Jeep.

The Jeep tells us he comes from a country with many roads and cars. He mentions pre-war plans for highways and cities that had to be scrapped because of the war, and the sacrifices the personalized Jeep is making for the war effort.

The Jeep then makes his first appearance before the servicemen, his experience in the desert and passing rivers and his nervousness in front of more experienced vehicles like the tank. Finally the Jeep proves his mettle and is put in general production, ridden by presidents and royalty. All this time he is accompanied by his friend, the American soldier.

  1. Italian owned company, registered in Netherlands, headquartered in London for tax purposes. One has to wonder.

    IMO, American companies never should be permitted to be sold to foreigners even if they are European.

    Trump was praising Foxconn the other day, a Taiwanese company, Apple supplier, for building a factory in Wisconsin. My understanding was “Made in America, Buy American” meant only buying from American owned companies making products in America. Guess I was wrong.
