By this time, Ford's manufacturing plants in Germany are the second largest producer of trucks for the German Wehrmacht.

According to U.S. intelligence documents, "of the 350,000 trucks which the motorized German army possessed in 1942, 100,000 to 120,000 were Ford-built."

So in a sense, the Wehrmacht and the Blitzkrieg are "Built Ford Tough."
