The US Rifle Company 1944

This manual covers the organisation and role of the US rifle company in the Infantry Regiment, and was issued in March 1944, just before the Allied landings in Normandy on D-Day.

It covers offensive and defensive combat for rifle platoons and squads (sections), and also contains similar information for the weapons platoon.

Methods covered include fighting in woods, built-up areas and on river lines, and assaults on fortified positions.

Of real importance in understanding how the Americans intended to fight when they met the Germans in France and beyond.
