World War I introduced the nations of Europe to a new world of mechanized conflict. Newly developed military trucks quickly transported troops, brought supplies, and relieved the wounded at amazing speed. At least at first. But as the destruction continued, even the most well-maintained roadways were transformed into muddy quagmires. Vehicle-mounted Shovels like this one waited to toil against ever-present hazards faced by a weary crew.
Each Shovel shows signs of use including chips, scrapes, and more. Packed with history, ready for display in your collection or just as a conversation piece around your home.
