A logistics miracle, the Red Ball Express deployed thousands of trucks on a one-way loop supplying troops at the front. Because of unit segregation, 75% of the drivers were African-American, many of whom had never driven a truck before. After only a few hours of instruction, these men became the backbone of the Express. Operating 24 hours a day, it is estimated that over 900 trucks were moving on the route at any given hour.
The WWII Red Ball Express Driver comes with a BrickArms OD Green M1 Steel Pot helmet.
