Ray R. Cowdery (1941) is an American author of non-fiction books about World War II ​, Nazi Germany ​ and Adolf Hitler ​ topics, including the Willys MB ​ jeep, the original Volkswagen ​ and the assassination of Reinhard Heydrich ​. The author is fluent in German, and visited Berlin and Nazi Germany sites dozens of times since the mid-1970s, seeking out countless facts and artifacts for archive, including Third Reich ​ German magazines and newspapers. [1] ​ The author had a career in international business, and has researched the assassination of Reinhard Heydrich in Czechoslovakia and the Czech Republic over a period of many years.

Cowdery authored two best-selling volumes of the history of the World War II jeep, and co-authored a guidebook to Nazi Germany identity documents. [2] ​ Cowdery's two ''All-American Wonder'' books detail almost all necessary knowledge to achieve near-perfect restoration of WW II jeeps, (Allen, 2004; p. 35) and Cowdery's production numbers of early, prestandardized jeeps, quoted in Volume I, are generally considered the most accurate. (Allen, 2004; p. 24)

Cowdery personally engaged the mythical existence of completely knocked down ​ (or CKD) jeep kits in-a-crate, that are sometimes claimed or believed to have survived World War II ''unassembled'', and considered somewhat of a "Holy grail" by collectors. For some 15 years he had a standing offer of $50,000 US for an authentic WW II "jeep-in-a-crate", without a single person coming forth. [4]
