Re: What would you take to battle?
Since most combat takes place at less than 500 yards, my real WW II preference is the M 1 Carbine. I have and shoot two of them, and at a couple of hundred yards, they are pretty accurate. But the Thompson's .45 is a "put down round" if it hits someone. My problem is that I think like a sniper (one round, one kill) rather than the more practical "spray and pray" approach to a combat situation.
