Kit# 9816 - US Army Infantry Officer
Valiant Miniature Kit# 9816 - U.S. Army Infantry Officer, 1944. Whatever may be said about the role of armor and aircraft in World War II, it remains indisputable that the real brunt of the fighting was borne by the infantryman. In the front line, there was little visible distinction between officers and men. Here officers were forced by circumstances to lead by example, not by command, and casualties were correspondingly heavy; it was calculated that the life expectancy of a second lieutenant under fire was just under two minutes.
