During World War II, many American troops were transported from Germany to France for return to the States in a rough-riding boxcars which carried 40 men or 8 horses (40 hommes et 8 chevaux). Veterans’ memories of travel in the rickety, unheated cars are pretty vivid; some men even resorted to building fires inside them to keep warm on the long, slow trips.
