Welcome to QuestMasters - The foundation for the recovery and
preservation of World War Two memorabilia for posterity.

History of our Quest:
Why we Quest?
Our goal is the preservation of World War Two history. In the not too distant future, the
breaths of those who were there making the history will no longer be able to tell the
story. History is normally written by the victor, but this was a World War. It effected
every country and every person, Allied and Axis. So, our focus is just that, to preserve
the story, from both sides. It is our responsibility to tell their story.

The idea behind QuestMasters started during a recovery trip in Europe. After a long
truck ride we realized that we were not only recovering and restoring World War Two
memorabilia, but also going to the ends of the earth to do it. Hence - this is our Quest.
The Second World War lasted for over 6 years. For the United States, we were
completely unprepared. Civilian companies quickly transformed into the American war
machine. Small companies like Maytag, the washing machine company, made gun
turrets for heavy bombers; Rock-Ola, a pin ball machine company, made rifles;
Goodyear, the tire company, made fighter aircraft; Cadillac, the automobile company,
made tank destroyers...and on and on. Farmboys, teachers, business men, barbers -
men and women alike gave up their everyday jobs to put on a uniform, to fight for their
country. They went to far-off lands, some unmapped - to fight and die. There was
rationing and recycling. All gave some, and some gave all. Valor was a common virtue.
And that is where we find ourselves, the children of a culture, responsible for the
history of the sacrifice they made for us.
