Gentlemen,
General Patton wrote TWO (2) Statements about the M1 Garand Rifle. The standard one was from Third Army Hq. This second one for Springfield Armory when he was there at the close of WW2. I just thought that you might fine them of Interest. Some of my files have been post before and some have not been posted.


Warning, before you go to my sites lower your volume as the opening page contains a sound file which has a loading and firing of the M1 Garand. So if you're at work or home it may be wise to check your volume control.
If you need a better copy just email me.

Patton was Patton, but I think the hand grenade is the best battle implement ever devised. Ask any WWII vet if he'd rather go into battle with:
a) an M1 Garand and no grenades or
b) a bolt-action Springfield and hand grenades

Hand grenades turned every infantryman into a artilleryman.

I see your point about the grenades... When ya can't shoot em through their cover a grenade will sure flush em out quick!

Grenades are a lifesaver at night. You're in your hole, you hear a noise, figure it's Charlie (or Fritz or Ivan), what do you do? If you fire your weapon the flash will give away your position.

So you toss a grenade. BG has no idea where it came from.

Yep, hand grenades are great.
