The C-47 was vital to the success of many Allied campaigns, in particular those at [[Battle of Guadalcanal|Guadalcanal]] and in the jungles of [[New Guinea]] and [[Burma Campaign|Burma]], where the C-47 and its naval version, the R4D, made it possible for Allied troops to counter the mobility of the light-travelling Japanese Army. C-47s were used to airlift supplies to the encircled American forces during the [[Battle of Bastogne]] in Belgium. Possibly its most influential role in military aviation, however, was flying "[[The Hump]]" from India into China. The expertise gained flying "The Hump" was later used in the [[Berlin Airlift]], in which the C-47 played a major role, until the aircraft were replaced by [[Douglas C-54 Skymaster|Douglas C-54 Skymasters]].{{Citation Needed|date=February 2018}}

Di [[Eropa]], C-47 dan versi yang khusus untuk mengangkut pasukan yang lebibh dikenal sebagai C-53 Skytrooper, sangat banyak dipergunakan dalam perang, khususnya untuk menarik glider dan menerjukan pasukan. Pada pendudukan [[Sisilia]] di [[Juli]] [[1943]], ia menerjukan tidak kurang dari 4,381 [[Pasukan terjun payung|pasukan terjung payung]] sekutu. Selain itu, tidak kurang dari 50,000 [[pasukan terjun payung]] diterjunkannya selama beberapa hari pertama dari [[D-Day]] yang dikenal juga sebagai [[Invasi Normandia]], [[Prancis]], pada [[Juni]] [[1944]].<ref>{{Cite book|title=The world's greatest aircraft : an illustrated history of the most famous civil and military planes.|url=https://www.worldcat.org/oclc/18771089|publisher=Exeter Books|date=[[1988]]|location=New York, NY|isbn=0791700119|oclc=18771089|last=|first=|year=[[1988]]|page=}}</ref> Selama [[Perang Pasifik]], dengan mempergunakan beberapa landasan pendaratan di beberapa pulau di [[Lautan Pasifik]], pesawat ini dipergunakan untuk membawa para tentara yang bertugas di sana kembali ke [[Amerika Serikat]].

Di Europe, the C-47 and a specialized [[Paratrooper|paratroop]] variant, the C-53 Skytrooper, were used in vast numbers in the later stages of the war, particularly to tow [[Military glider|gliders]] and drop paratroops. During the [[Allied invasion of Sicily|invasion of Sicily]] in July 1943, C-47s dropped 4,381 Allied paratroops. More than 50,000 paratroops were dropped by C-47s during the first few days of the [[D-Day]] campaign also known as the [[invasion of Normandy]], France, in June 1944.<ref>Cacutt, Len.
