9.2 Pictures and sounds
Among the many videos made by Johan Edelhausen (www.ww2vehiclesvideos.nl), there are two fully dedicated to GMC, called ‘GMC Adventures’ and 'GMC Special'. They comprise recordings of recent off-the-road events but also a few recordings from 1940-1945. A sample of Johan's recent recordings can be found on the page 'Not too late !' within this web site
Every now and then, the television broadcasting company Discovery Channel repeats a documentary called ‘Machines that won the war’. Not unexpectedly, one of the five items pertains to the CCKW. The documentary contains very interesting interviews with former drivers. A selection from this documentary can been watched here
The place to go to in The Netherlands for seemingly brand new GMC’s is undoubtedly the George Marshall Museum. In 2006 this museum has become a part of the War and Resistance Museum in Overloon, The Netherlands (www.oorlogsmuseum.nl) Caution: right now (May 2007) it is uncertain whether this unique collection will stay in Overloon, due to a managerial conflict. So, check before you decide to go there.
