From the outbreak of the Second World War, the US Armed forces started to actively prepare for what they saw as their inevitable entry into the conflict. Nevertheless, they were still relatively ill prepared when they were finally drawn into the war on December 7th 1941, following the surprise attack by the Japanese on the US naval base at Pearl harbour.

Here we will see how the American G.I. was equipped by the time of 1944 on D-Day.

  1. A German Soldier noted that he knew the war was lost after being captured because he noticed American privates drinking coffee and eating chocolate bars and leaving their tanks and trucks idling

    Such things were rare even for high ranking officers in the German army and wasting such gasoline was a court martial offense

  2. The 3 pocket grenade pouch was never intended to carry 2 grenades per pocket. The pockets were made longer than necessary for carrying a single frag grenade so that longer types such as smoke grenades could be carried. Some post-war replicas have been made even longer to accommodate 2 frag grenades, but the actual wartime pouches were strictly one grenade per pocket.

  3. When you first see the video before you click on it I see the uniform but there's something odd where's the man in in there I know the Men's wearing the uniform all of it but the clothes and everything else there's just one thing missing the man

  4. Is it possible to see the uniform and kits from all branches of the United States Military from the Iraq War & The Afghanistan War Era? I'm curious to see how different they are even though they all fight for the same country.
