WW2 Infantry Weapons

Since the infantry is the branch of the Army that conquers and secures an enemy-held territory for the nation the infantrymen represent, World War II infantry weapons were strategically as important as big-caliber howitzers, tanks, and bombers. They were varied and ranged in calibers from 8mm pistols to 75mm infantry support guns; and when the artillery or ground attack aircraft were absent, the foot soldier had a his disposal a wide variety of powerful weaponry to get rid of the most lethal obstacles that cropped up on his way to victory. Thus, anti-tank grenade launchers, demolition explosives, and flame throwers were also used to put out of action enemy armored vehicles, machine gun nests, and gun-emplacement bunkers. Like rabid ants, the infantry swarmed over enemy land, using their vicious tools of duty to snuff out any resistance.
