Osprey Special Editions (Military) : GI : The US Infantryman in World War II
Serving on every major fighting front of World War 2, US infantrymen proved themselves adaptable, resilient and steadfast in their determination to overthrow the Axis forces. In the Pacific, Mediterranean and European theatres of war, GIs tackled unfamiliar terrain, hostile climates, and unpredictable local conditions. This book examines the typical experiences of a single soldier fighting in each geographic region, and in doing so, illuminates a larger picture of a nation's experience of one of history's most cataclysmic conflicts. Text and images previously published in Osprey Warriors 45, 53 and 56 are combined with brand new material focusing on the Southwest Pacific region in this special edition. Text by Robert S. Rush with illustrations by Elizabeth Sharp.
