    snowscew propulsion predates WWII by 20 years. Consider Armstead snow-motor company.

    Hello James Kahn,
    Yes, I’m surprised to see that a Mr. Burch came up with this idea in the 20′s, filed a patent and actually built a working example.
    This is a good example of men solving problems by intuition. I enjoyed looking at the film showing the obvious advantages and some of the handling problems. These match up to what my dad told me about his vehicle.
    My father was intuitive, solving many everyday problems by relying on his (extensive)experience.
    Well, another thought comes up as to why the
    Lend Lease Act preparing (enabling) Stalin for WWII did not include such a machine ( or other more suitable gear ) to operate in the known devastating winter conditions of Siberia.
    What was supplied were very conventional tanks. Very many of them. Just a side thought!
