After Germany surrendered in May 1945 to end WWII in Europe, the country was divided into occupation zones. As a member of the US Army I was in a part of Germany that was assigned as the Russian Army of Occupation area. The Russian soldiers arrived walking or riding in Model AA Ford stake body trucks. In the week I spent in the Russian zone, as the occupying forces moved in, I saw no motorized vehicles except Model AA Ford stake body trucks. The troops were friendly but I none I personally met spoke English. I had two Model A's waiting for my return home.

Those are great photos! Are they technically Fords? I thought I read at one time that they were built in Russia with the same specs but were called something different.
Barnstuf, very interesting and on a related note my uncle was a pilot, he flew the Berlin Airlift.
