About this Product

US Small Arms in World War II is a detailed photographic study of the wide array of weapons that American troops were issued during World War II. Packed with rare images, this incredible collection of wartime photos provides a unique look into the combat experiences of American troops throughout the war. From the beaches of Normandy to the jungle battles across the Pacific, every major theatre of war is covered, as are virtually all of the small arms carried by the men in combat. This all-encompassing photographic history provides exciting battlefield views, including some never-before-published, of America's World War II arsenal of infantry arms, including pistols, rifles, carbines, combat shotguns, automatic rifles, and machine guns.

Biographical Note

The son of a US 8th Infantry Division veteran who fought in Normandy, Brittany and Germany, Tom Laemlein has always been fascinated by weaponry. However, it wasn't until his thirties that he purchased his first carbine which was the start of his collecting career. It also set him on his path as a publisher of specialist titles aimed at weapon collectors and enthusiasts through the creation of Armor Plate Press. His most recent publishing successes have included the highly successful American Firepower Series.
