Kaiser WilhelmⅡ, Germany’s Imperial Warlord, was obsessed by war and conquest , he always liked to be as close to the action as his generals would allow. In order to do so, comfortably, he had several special staff vehicles built to carry him closer to the battle. This particular Mercedes contained his camp bed, toilet facilities, a wash basin and his personal maps. Attached to it was a canopy and stairs to allow easy access. It even had a small heater/ stove to provide his favorite coffee!
