The standing operating procedures and technical data outlined in this manual are the results of practical study and recent experience in the European and Pacific Theaters. They are published to provide up-to-date information designed to promote the most efficient utilization of DUKWs in current and future operations. Intended primarily for the guidance of DUKW operating personnel, this manual is also valuable for officers planning amphibious assault operations, as well as those charged with supply activities in undeveloped ports.
The DUKW (colloquially known as Duck) is a six-wheel-drive amphibious truck that was designed by a partnership under military auspices of Sparkman & Stephens and General Motors Corporation (GMC) during World War II for transporting goods and troops over land and water and for use approaching and crossing beaches in amphibious attacks. Designed to last only long enough to meet the demands of combat, productionized Ducks, a modification of the 2-ton capacity "deuce" trucks used by the US military in World War II, were later used as tourist craft in marine environments.
