I did not know this…

The Leica Freedom Train

I guess I always assumed the opposite, given the amount of material the company must have produced for the military at the time…

Apparently I was wrong.

There is a book (published in 2002) that I must now add to my reading list…someday when I have the time:

The Greatest Invention of the Leitz Family: The Leica Freedom Train” by Frank Dabba Smith.

Thanks to user Luke Kaven of DPReview for bringing this to my attention.
