In very large part this is true.Most folks are unaware that because of the absence of sealift, transports from the US were reserved for tanks, artillery,ammunition. While jeeps and deuce and a halfs were manufactured under license in Japan by Toyota, Honda and Nissan. Facilities were modernized and Detroit methods were employed. All of which in a sfew year began to turn out Datsuns and Toyotas for Japan and later the world.
