The Long Range Desert Group of WWII consisted of stalwart British soldiers facing fierce conditions of desert warfare while evading Italian and German troops. They gathered information and intelligence of troop movements and strengths across the Sahara Desert. While the LRDG was initially equipped with large two-wheel-drive Chevy trucks, the jeep made for a small and mobile platform to carry out their duties. Modified for desert driving and surviving on their own, these were truly the original DED Tour guys.
