Entering the war in late 1941, the first time American troops faced the enemy in the Western campaign was in North Africa in 1942. However, it was not until Italy in 1943 and the invasion of Normandy in 1944 that they faced the Wehrmacht on the Western Front. Well equipped with automatic M1 Garand rifles and Thompson sub-machine guns, the average American infantryman was a tough adversary who won the respect of his German opponents.
