Valiant Miniature Kit# 9767 - British Infantry Running Rifleman, 1939-45. Blenheim, Quebec, Waterloo, Inkerman, Omdurman, Mons, El Alamein - the Battle Honours of the British infantry regiments roll across the pages of history with a majesty unequaled by any army of the world. The tradition of unyielding determination under fire has continued unbroken from the days of Poitiers and Agincourt to the more recent battles of the Second World War. There is no doubt that the British soldier of the Second World War lived up to the finest traditions of his service. The tenacity and courage that held the field at Waterloo and mowed down the Kaiser's Guards at Mons were to be found in equal measure in the fox-holes and rubble of Caen. General Eisenhower once commented that while he preferred to use American troops for a quick breakthrough and pursuit, for the tough battles of attrition, fought from hole to hole and house to house, no one could match the British.
