They power mas sive tanks moving into battle - heavy trucks in endless supply lines, tractors to clear land ing fields, landing and assault boats, big sub marines and fast subchasers in home and in foreign waters. In every respect, these GM Diesel Engines are living up to all that was predicted for them-and more. In many instances they are doing an even DIESEL POWER greater variety of jobs than they were designed for. They are standing up under conditions that couldn't possibly have been foreseen. When the war is over, GM Diesels will be ready to serve the peace as they are serving in war. With this difference: expanded production facil ities, together with improvements and refine ments in design and construction, will make them even more available for use-more capable of reliable, low-cost performance.
