The most widely-used US glider in WWII was the Waco CG-4 with 15 seats. The larger CG-10 could carry almost 11K lb of cargo (like two howitzers). These were basically one-time-use throw-away aircraft, a far cry from today's sail planes. I am surprised that any American did not know about this effort but I guess much has changed since I went to school. But maybe that explains much.
