The off-road and amphibious capabilities of the German Schwimmwagen proved extremely valuable in the arduous conditions throughout the war and especially during the Battle of the Bulge. This troop & small arms transport capabilities provided quick response for an advancing, and then retreating German Army.  Its all-wheel drive, great versatility and rugged reliability made it the small vehicle of choice for both soldiers and commanders, unlike the American version.

This Type 166 Schwimmwagen is from the German 716th Infantry Division and is painted in a western front motif.  The 716th Infantry Division first engaged the invading Allied paratroopers in defense of  the bridges over the river Orne and canal of Caen.  The division fought continuously during its arduous retreat to German soil.
