From the cover: “During the arduous campaigns in theatres of war from the Pacific to North West Europe, American infantry weapons played a key role in the eventual victory over the Axis forces. In the process they earned a well-deserved reputation for ruggedness and reliability. In addition to being used by US ground forces they were widely adopted by other Allied nations.
Many names such as the Browning Automatic Rifle (BAR) and the incomparable semiautomatic Garand will be well known whereas others (the Johnson Rifle and Reising SMG) are not. The typically informative text completes the wide range of photographic images showing these weapons in action worldwide.
Expert military author Mike Green puts the full range of small arms, be they rifles, submachine guns, shotguns, pistols, machine guns as well as mortars, anti-tank weapons and close infantry support artillery under the microscope. As a result United States Infantry Weapons of the Second World War will be invaluable to war-gamers, modellers, weapons enthusiasts and collectors.”
