Due to insufficient manufacturing capacities of European companies, American motor vehicles were to be found in most European countries. The largest number of American passenger cars was surely captured during the west campaign in 1940 because American motor vehicles were widely spread in these countries. France and the Benelux states had procured hundreds of American lorries before WW II. In Norway many American lorries were captured, too. However, these remained usually with the units stationed there. A further large source for American motor vehicles was the Soviet Union, because the USA supplied thousands of passenger cars and lorries in the course of the Lend & Lease agreement. Further American motor vehicles might have been captured in Tunisia, in Italy and in France after the invasion in 1944.
