The “Einheits-Diesel” lorries were made identical by all nine manufacturers: Büssing-NAG, Daimler-Benz, FAUN, VOMAG, Henschel, Krupp, Magirus, MAN and Borgward.This profusely illustrated photo album includes many previously unseen pictures, many from private sources in Germany. Whatever the rules might have said, German soldiers took many photos.
